Description R P Herrold 2001-01-02 15:00:15 EST
Per the discussion across the weekend on the Beta-Testers list, 

add a file:  /etc/sysconfig/syslogd  and /etc/sysconfig/klogd

allowing for a syntax:


- and -


Source each in the relevant initscript, and 

    daemon syslogd -m 0 $SOPTIONS

(properly, to avoid the mess like with sendmail, move the '-m 0' option
into the new SOPTIONS as a default setting)

For completeness, add to the klogd line as well, like:

     daemon klogd $KOPTIONS


Minor print documentation extension to point out the newly available
{SK}OPTIONS entry.
