well you can configure all your machines separately to log user activity and then tell crond to email you all the log files on a specified server. this can be set up in a script and tell crond to run it every day or whenever you like. You can introduce any amount of variety and diversity in this idea.

best wishes

can be done with 98 as well,
the best thing to do would be to make your linux machine the router and sniff everything off of it.

AOA
Well you can use ( as cwackked pointed out ) a Sniffer like Ethereal or TCP Dump.. comes with Linux ... Ethereal is GUI Based and easier to use and TCP Dump is console based prog ... choice is urs....
hope it helps
