Logging in rhel5

Hey guys,
I was wondering if there was a way to ensure the following are logged through some commands in RHEL 5.

account creation and maintenance
log-in and log-out activity (success and failures)
Successful or unsuccessful attempts to access files
Remote access activity

I'm not sure if this is done by default in /var/log. If any one could help me, it would be great.

Here's some help

I don't know a bunch of commands of the top of my head....
One command I do know is adduser. Type in
man adduser
for more info. If you hit enter with the man page displayed, you can find more info and likely more commands. Also, there is a series called Linux Toolbox. This book is where I originally got the
from is SUSE Linux Toolbox. (I don't have it for reference on me) I reccomend you get Fedora\Red Hat Toolbox. These books are loaded with commands and details organized by function. It is a must-have for me.
