Question Logging Directory access


I am looking for a way to log directory access to syslog. (anything from ls /directory to vi /directory/file) I have multiple users on my box that need to know the root pw so simply securing a directory is not an option. I have looked into bash loggers, creating a pam module, or something as simple as grep .bash_history. I have spent weeks googling thinking that someone else in the world would need this, but have come up with dead ends. I would appreciate any ideas!!!
Thanks

Maybe you should first explain *why* so many ppl need the root pw, and why using sudo doesn't work for you.
You could try a combination of Grsecurity's audit logging and Syscalltrack/systrace. Should provide huge loads of logs.
