First: make sure there is a file that klogd can find. It needs
to be in / /boot or /usr/src/linux and one of them needs to match the
current (booting) kernel version. I copy the one that ends up in
/usr/src/linux after compiling to /boot/ and then do
ln -s /boot/`uname -r` / in one of the startup

Second: Check that your klogd is new enough. I believe klogd-1.3 has a
minor patch available to make it work on kernels > 2.0.0
I installed sysklogd-1.3-9.i386.rpm as I'm running RedHat, and
that works...

I'll write this up for the changes file and send it to Chris Ricker....
