As luck would have it, I know how (well, one way anyway) to do it.

You have to point the root folder (i.e. in your apache configuration)  
to the /wordpress folder (i.e. "/var/www/somesite/wordpress" instead  
of "/var/www/somesite").

If your blog is not the main focus of your site (i.e.  
'http://somesite.com' isn't just for your blog), you'll probably do  
better to create a subdomain (blog.somesite.com) so that you don't  
make a mess of things ;)
