You can't in mod_perl. When you use Basic Authentication, the *browser*
pops up the "prompt box". To change this, you have to ditch Basic Auth
and implement something else.

You best start by looking at the various "auth" packages in Apache and
those in in Perl (Apache::.*Auth). Then consider doing this in
Javascript or in HTML.
