How I do it for my sites is borrowing from the concept that phpBB uses...
every time a user accesses a page within the site, update the DB with the
username and a timestamp. then have the script that figures out who is on
delete any records older then a specified time, and return the users that
are left. it doesn't display everyone who is on in real time, but any one
who was on within a certain period (usually I stick with 5 minutes)

If any one else has any interesting/creative ways, I'd love to hear them
