Yes and this is why I want them to be logged separately. Thanks to the helpful 
replies by everyone, I have been able to log iptables log to a separate file 
but the problem still remains.

/var/log/messages is getting flooded by iptables log. I can't see any helpful 
output by using dmesg. The kernel config says that ULOG is deprecated so I 
don't know how good it would be to use it. Also the kernel.log/kern.log  is 
not getting updated with messages like connection of a USB device and all; so 
can't leave dmesg altogether.

Since it is a desktop machine, I will not be making database of my firewall 
logs.Just require my dmesg output to be clean while having the ability of 
looking at firewall logs occasionally. How can I achieve that? Should I 
switch to ULOG? I am just a bit sceptical about using a deprecated thing.

Thanks once again to everyone for their replies
Regards,

Abhay
