detecting user's url paths..

I have a site with a global header with navigation tabs.  In a portion of the site I have a members only section.  I want to be able to use an alternate tab while the url path is with in a particular section ONLY.

For example these would get  the special header:
www.foo.com/members/index.cfm
www.foo.com/members/upgrade/index.cfm

Thes would not:
ww.foo.com/index.cfm
www.foo.com/public/index.cfm

I thought id use a cfif in my header file to detect the path the user is on.  Using #cgi.script_name# or #cgi.http_referer#.
Maybe like this:
<cfif #cgi.script_name#  EQ /members/>
show this header image
<cfelse>
show regular header image
</cfif>

But I wanted something more like intelligent like
<cfif #cgi.script_name#  EQ /members/*.cfm>

It's flawed, as it can't determine what each page would be as I add new ones. Help! Need this ASAP ...

Thanks,
PM
