RasMon, part of the Windows 2000 resource kit will allow you to monitor active connections, but does not log connections. It will even beep when a user connects/disconnects.

You can also enable logging within RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Services), which provides some information. Open the RRAS console | expand the server name | click on Remote access logging | Right click on Local file in the right hand window and choose properties | on the settings tab check the 2 boxes; "log accounting requests" and "Log authentication requests".
On the local file tab you will see the default log file location, which is usually C:\WINNT\syetem32\LogFiles\iaslog.log
