if ($login && $password) {
$password=crypt($password, $login);
$data=authenticate($login, $password);

If you have a forum like vbulletin, you'll have to get into setting up a cookie that vbulletin also uses and check against that cookie for each page to insure the user is logged in.

Check out the vbulletin (or other forum) code to see what the cookie is that it sets and set the same cookie from your main page login.

That should do it...'course, I could just be an idiot too. ;)
