Oracle 9i Audit Trail is True, but sys.aud$ table is not capturing data

Hi, I  have enabled auditing in an Oracle 9i instance, but the sys.aud$ table is still showing zero rows.  I have set the value of audit_trail = TRUE.  This has worked fine for me in other Oracle 9i instances, but not here.  I am able to describe the sys.aud$ table now that auditing is enabled, but if I do a count it returns zero rows.  Sys.aud$ is completely empty and there has been lots of traffic on the database.  There have been many logins as well.  Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated.

Thanks

You might also check the AUDIT_FILE_DEST parameter.  If it is set to a directory, it will put audit records to the operating system... I'm pretty sure if it is set to "DB" it will store in the SYS.AUD$ table.
@joebednarz: the author said he has AUDIT_TRAIL=TRUE, which is identical to AUDIT_TRAIL=DB, so no OS logging :-)
