Sorry, but that's impossible. It's called duplicate content. Using Domain Alias is the proper way to achieve what you want to do. From there, I would recommend using .htaccess and mod_rewrite to control your traffic and url structures. I use this exact system.

If you truly want two domains to point to, and serve, the exact same webroot, then you are creating a domain alias, no matter what means you use to achieve it.

On a side note, using 301 redirection avoids the duplicate content penalty which is why it is the preferred method for SEO.
