there may be other ways. but if you use a remote control product like vnc

tightvnc (updated, still free)

When using TightVNC with Windows XP, the remote screen not showing up is not caused by network speed or resolution settings. Under Windows XP, VNC can't work if Terminal Services are enabled

I don't know about netwatch, but most of the time, you can't really tell who's on a Win9X machine.  The reason?  Win9X does NOT have some kind of security built-in.  You get the same level of security when you cancel your logon (i.e. NO users authenticated) vs. someone who's really got an account on the local system.

It is very easy to hack the password if the user has his credential stored locally.

It's been a while since I've used Win9X, but you might be able to figure out who's using it by a combination of NET (use / view / ?) command.
