Question Newbie syslogd Question

Extream newibe to Linux in general and have a few basic questions, so be nice. :->
Have Redhat 7.3
Ran syslogd -r to receive messages on RH 7.3.
Set my LRP Dial-Out Boot Disk Router box set to send log messges to the RH 7.3 box. Basic IP config is up and running and can ping between fine.
Looked in /var/log on RH 7.3 and do not see the logs from that unit. Is there something I need to set in like the syslog.conf file to tell syslog where to put the received files? Is there another location where syslogd stores log files other then the /var/log directory?
On another very newibe question, when I try to run "trafshow" in my console window loged in as root, I get a command not found.
All other network diag stuff works ok (i.e. - nslookup, route -n, netstat -r, traceroute, ifconfig -a, ect....) Is this option not loaded in a basic RedHat install?
Thanks in advance!
