Separate firewall logs and general logs


I have installed a SUSE 9.0 pro.
The kernel messages go to /var/log/messages
The firewall messages go to /var/log/warn and messages as well. So, i want the firewall messages to go only to /var/log/warn.

Can this be done?

I mean configuring the /etc/syslog.conf
Does anyone know the exact configuration?

Can't. Netfilter (the kernel component of Linux firewalling) logs under a fixed facility and priority. You can't change that, the only thing you can do is make output go/copy output. If you want reporting, try using a firewall log parser (see Freshmeat).
