On the DC you need to configure this security setting by opening the appropriate policy and expanding the console tree as such: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Audit Policy\

Audit logon events:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787567(WS.10).aspx
Sample events for 2000/2003:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb742436.aspx

Instead of checking the eventvwr with too much infor to look through you can use a simple logon script which outputs logon info to a text file.
