Dear jeanmonline,

you can use the built-in auditing in Windows Server 2003.
Please refer to
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc784387(WS.10).aspx 
as well as

You can also (if you don't like the Microsoft solution) check out ScriptLogic's FileSystemAuditor (which however is not free) http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/filesystemauditor/

Kind regards,
Soren

Why not use the auditing options available anduse splunk or something similar to collect the security event logs per server.

properties of the directory, security tab, advanced, auditing tab.
You can add the group of user whose access should be audited.
