Multiple protected directories

This may have a simple answer, but I have not been able to find it!

I need to have 20 protected directories. Each directory having a unique user with access.
I need to have a main link on the web page that requests the username and password. Once entered it eill send the user to their appropriate directory.

I currently have the directories set up and access set up via .htaccess, but I am not sure how to make the login send the user to their folder.

Main Directory - enter via web browser you are asked for username and login
Directory 1 - user 1 -when user 1 is entered at login they are sent to this derectory
Directory 2 - user 2 -when user 2 is entered at login they are sent to this derectory
etc...

If your first page is a cgi script, it could ask for the user name and password and then check it and then send them to the appropriate directory (since you could put the logic in there as you have the user name).

You would actually not use the .htaccess then.

To check that password:
Code:
#!/u/bin/perl
#
#  Grab the user's old password from /etc/shadow and compare to sent
#       old password from web page - send back error if not the same

# ====================================================================
# Set up variables ------------
$user = "$ARGV[0]";
$oldpass = "$ARGV[1]";
$datenow = "`date '+%h %d %T'`";
#
$userinfo = `/usr/bin/grep $user /etc/shadow`;
($user1, $passwd1, $passextra) = split(/:/, $userinfo, 3);
$salt = substr($passwd1,0,2);
#
# Put testing junk here (print variables)
#
    if (crypt($oldpass, $salt) ne $passwd1) {
        # =========== FAILED - write to messages file - return error =========
        system("/usr/bin/echo \"$datenow progserver chgpwd: ERROR changing $user
 password on check\" >> /var/adm/messages");
        die "";
    }
