You can't. Htaccess only applies to files, and can't do anything more. You can, however, pass control to a simple cgi script
that can redirect to the correct page by checking out the username. In the example above for instance, htaccess could
protect access to a script that looked like this:

#!perl
$|++;
$name = $ENV{"REMOTE_USER"};
if ($name eq "joe") { $loc = "joe.html"; }
if ($name eq "boss") { $loc = "boss.html"; }
$location = "http://mysite.com/blahblah/$loc";
print "Location: $location\n\n";

A simple example, but you get the idea. Htaccess is simply
a password scheme, but has no filtering based on the
username. If you going to use a cgi script anyway, you
could even get rid of using htaccess and use the script
to validate (and filter) the users with a simple form.
