I know this is easy for many of you so I will assign the full 500 points to the first correct answer.  I am having a security problem with logging into my SQL Database from an application I wrote.  I need to know where SQL 2005 stores its log files so I can determine the details of the login problem.

Thanks
Kenny

In fact the "MSSQL.2" portion can vary depending on your database instance.
