Hi experts,

Before I get started, I just want to say I'm just "OK" with linux. I only know enough to be dangerous.

I have redhat server that i want to point my Juniper firewalls to for syslog:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 4 (Nahant Update 6)

The Juniper gives me the option to log to Facilities 1-6.

In the linux server, I cat etc/syslog.conf.

I want to create a local facility 3 and point it directory /var/log/juniper

Question: how would I do that?  
note that /var/log exists, so I would have to create a juniper directory.

No worries about log rotations at this time. I just want to get started with this.
