do you currently use any form of authentication? eg. smb_auth, ncsa.
if so then usernames should already be logged. otherwise you need to come
up with a authentication mechanism.

if you don't want to authenticate but just log user names then ident might
be a good idea, however if you want to to full authentication with ident
then the workstations should be running a proper secure multi-user OS
eg. Linux, NT. this works very well as usernames/passwords do not need to
be typed in, so if you are using linux/nt workstations then this is an
excellent solution. unfortunatly ident is not 100% reliable on non multi
user OS's like Win9X as registry settings can be made to fake userid's and
so on....
