Not sure if you are having problems instantiaing a curl request or avoiding the header or what. There's  class here that may help you:
http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.curl-exec.php#80442

IMPORTANT: Make sure you read the comment right above it too.

Here's how you would use that class:
$rq=new CurlRequest();
$params=array(
	'url'=>'http://forum.doom9.org/login.php'
	,'host'=>'forum.doom9.org'
	,'method'=>'POST'
	,'cookie'=> dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) .'/cookies.txt'
	,'timeout'=>0
	,'post_fields' => 'username=user&password=sedr&action=login'
);
$rq->init($params);
$result = $rq->exec();
echo $result['header'];//this is to print just the header
echo $result['body'];//this will print only the content
