You seem to be asking the wrong question, but I'll give it a shot
anyway. If you want to write files via a cgi program (is that what
you're doing?) then the file/directory must be writeable by the 'nobody'
or 'apache' user. This is a file permission thing, and has nothing to do
with .htaccess files.

If that doesn't help, then you might want to provide us with an error
message that you are receiving, and a detailed account of exactly what
it is that you are trying to do.
