What does /var/log/messages tell you? It writes something down every time someone logs in.

I'm not sure I understood that
Does it work, or don't you have access to /var/log/messages?
On my computer, I can access it by pressing f12. Else something like
Code:
init 3 ; sleep 10 ; tail /var/log/messages > ~/log
(after booting at runlevel 1) should help.
