Mohan,

The standard Zope user folder handles only basic authentication which
generally needs to be done via a popup dialog on your browser.  At some
point, a user needs to type his authentication credentials into the dialog.
The Zope security machinery handles this in the background.

To force a popup box to be displayed:

<dtml-raise Unauthorized>
  You are not logged in.
</dtml-raise>

There is a user folder product named "UserDb" which supports cookie
authentication that lets you create a custom login form.  There is also the
"LoginManager" product, which I think allows you to do the same (though I've
not used it).
