I use kernel debug to get iptables messages into a separate log file
and off the console...

# /etc/syslogd.conf Send iptables LOG to iptables.log
kern.=debug                                             /var/log/iptables.log

The add "--log-level debug" to any iptables rules you want logged. We
do use a separate iptables setup script based on the O'Reilly
bastion_firewall script on most hosts though, integrating this method
with the default iptables setup may required some fiddling.
