How we can monitor network client machines with Windows Server 2000?

How we can monitor network client machines with the help of Windows Server 2000? Can we have a log for each machine and the activities done on each machine?
There is no central log repository for Windows events. However, each Windows computer since Windows NT can provide audit logs of activity on itself. You must configure auditing, and you must monitor the logs. Third party utilities can provide centralized logging, and Microsoft provides a free tool, Event Comb, ( http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/prodtech/win2000/secwin2k/09detect.asp) that can assist you in monitoring the event logs.
