The openni_tracker node publishes new users as frames. The node generates a frame for each limb (hand, arm, head, leg, and so on) of the detected person. You can check the result with RVIZ by setting the gui to visualize data about tf and by setting as fixed frame the Kinect's frame.

To visualize this on Rviz do I just run Rviz normally using the command rosrun rviz rviz ? @Chaos

You need also to configure RVIZ to visualize frames. Press the add button on the bottom left, search for "tf" and add it. Make sure you set the right fixed frame.
