I want to capture events in a log file but only need the events that occur during a server lock up.  Is there a way to set the log file size and record events FIFO (first in first out)?  

If not with PROCMON, any recommendations for a logging program?

Thanks!

I have just consulted my copy of "Windows Sysinterals Administator's reference" by Russinovich and Margosis.  

It would appear that a FIFO logging option is not available.

However, you can specify a backing file.  So you could have a scheduled task that logs to a file.  You could then get your script to delete the log and restarting logging again, if you see what I mean?!!
