In PHP, all information about the client will be found in the '$_SERVER' varible, and you can access, i.e. IP address, by going $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'].  You can find the full list of information'$_SERVER provides at: http://us2.php.net/reserved.variables

I would say print out all the infomation about them and say it is recorded.  You should record it in either a flat file or a database.  

Good article to write to file: http://www.phpnoise.com/tutorials/20/3
Good article to insert to a database: http://www.infinite-fire.net/tutorials/photoshop/insert-data-into-a-mysql-database

As for the real security, you could use htaccess based security: http://www.novia.net/~tomcat/HowTo/password.html

and custom a 403 Forbidden page with your 'to scare' bad users, i.e. the PHP page the we talk about above.    ITs the same as making custom 404 pages: http://www.pageresource.com/zine/custom404.htm

I think using REMOTE_ADDR and displaying the IP address and saying that is has been recorded usually scares most people. (=  I dont know of how much more of an example because I usually just save the trouble and make the site super secure.
