switching users in cgi

P: n/a
i am developing cgi script that read a unix user name and password,
After authentication, i need to switch the environment to that of that
user and display his/her files in her/his home directory. As my web
server runs as nobody , it cannot have access to files in the user's
home. What is a correct way to be able to achieve this?
