A log of user logins/logouts in SUsE SLES 9

Hello All
Is there a log file which keeps track of user logins/ logouts in SUsE SLES 9?

A log file that will track when users log on and it will give me the date and time of when they logged-in and the date and time for when they logged-out?

I do use the last command but the info is limited and doesnt keep for weeks like I need it to.
Any help is appreciated

Thank you

The log where the logins are depends a bit from the distribution.
In Fedora and RedHat they are in /var/log/secure
In Debian they can be found in /var/log/auth.log

They also can be in /var/log/messages
