you 'd need process forking, which is has to be compiled into php
and which should/could not be used within a webserver environement.

i don't know your scripts will work,
if you call process_function after including auth_user.php.
if it works, i'd do it this way:

... do some authentication stuff

include("auth_user.php"); // takes user to authenticated area
