I know that, I can use HTTP, or just normal HTML to prompt for user id
and password.
And check against the plain text, encrypted text or Database for the user

But I wonder if I can check the user account against with the
/etc/passwd, i.e. use the system accounts.

For example, in the system, I am account 'snoopy', and password 'isadog'.
In PHP, I prompt for the account, and if the user enters snoopy:isadog,
can I verify this from the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow???
