    Hmm.. could you be more specific? If you mean keep track of everything they do, i don't know about that! But *NIX systems to keep many logs in text files.

    Well, to see what sites they are visiting is a function of the web browser, not the OS. I don't know which browser you are using, but most have a folder with a history of sites visited. Assuming of course that the users are not deleting the contents after browsing the net.

    As for what program's are run I don't know of any log's but maybe some of the other guys here may have an answer.
