You just need to use some async javascript to pull it off.  I  
recommend MochiKit and serving data to it via JSON objects encoded by  
JSON::Syck  -- its quite fast to develop.

Your question is a straight-up fundamental JS/HTML issue, it really  
doesn't have anything to do with mod_perl (yet, at least).   Your  
page is refreshing, because you're submitting a form and requesting a  
new page in the main browser window.  to keep the page from  
refreshing, you want to handle that via xmlhttprequest or something  
similar - where javascript or flash communicates with the server ,  
handles the authentication, and populates the page.

mod_perl can do whatever you want on the server-side, but you're  
looking at a client-side probelm.
