i ain`t sure about 2008, but in XP should look like this:

( file : logon.cmd )

echo logon %username% %computername% %date% %time%

Update Group Policy to run the appropriate batch file. In Group Policy, go to:
User Configuration-> Windows Settings-> Scripts (Logon/Logoff)-> Logon

maybe you can learn the technique and make something useful

Good luck

You could always take a look at the security log. You would need to have Logon Event (Success and Failure) Auditing enabled. You can set that up in either the Local Security Policy or in Group Policy.

Here is an older MS How to for configuring Local Security Policy to enable auditing. It is for Win2k but it still holds up:

HOW TO: Enable Local Security Auditing in Windows 2000

After it is configured, you can view the logs in Event Viewer (under the security log).
