You can't.

You'll have to either:
Re-code it to get different variables in a web FORM.
Not use PHP at all, and use mod_auth_mysql
Use .htaccess instead of PHP (only suitable for small # of users, probably)

I think it's a security issue that you'd be passing the username/password
from Apache to the CGI in an insecure manner...  Don't quote me on that
