Recovering an audit trail on the Mac OS (Tiger)


We have a predominantly Windows network and have been neglecting the Design department who have been enjoying the freedom of Administrative priviledges on their Macs.  We're not too experienced with supporting / Administering Macs but are comfortable enough using Windows and Linux systems so are prepared to get our hands dirty with any suggestions.

Without using any third party software, is it possible to trace what  a user has been doing?  Like a log of times / dates software was installed, uninstalled or if they've been connecting to each others computers directly via a network share or similar.

I'm not sure if there's an activity log or event viewer installed with Macs by default which would give this information.  Any Mac Sys Admins out there able to assist with this?

Technical comments appreciated.

Apologies for the time taken to close this - the answer is accepted - and a great starting point for anyone else interested in knowing where to look ;o)
