Ok complete newbie question here:

Too late! I figured it out for myself. Incase anyone's interested:

add to /etc/syslog.conf

daemon.* /var/log/daemon.log

(obviously leave a big gap in between them for consistancy's sake)

mine was pointed to a different logfile (pppmsg curiously enough) so it was enabled all the way along!.
