Auditing

I want to track when a user logs on and when they log off, this is just for learning so I will be doing the log on and off for John Doe account, and then I want to see the logs....
I would also like to see when the admin or someone with delegation rights creates anew account or modifies an account.

Never really done it before, while I have the general idea of how to and to look in the event log I don't exactly know how, can someone please walk me step by step done some reading, I'm missing something.

Thanks

I'm a bit confused . I did read up on the link you send me, but  why local policies I want to do it so when a user on the domain logs on and off would that not be done on the domain Group Policy?
