If you mean that you want all request serving to be under a different
userid for the virtualhost, then this is not possible.  (You can look
at the metux mpm, but I don't think it is very stable.)

If you mean you want suexec to run cgi scripts under that userid (as
you could do in apache 1.3), then you want the SuexecUserGroup
