Controlling kernel log size

Hi all,

looking into my /var/log, I noticed that kern.log and syslog were
taking a lot of space. After inspecting this files, I figured out that
they were keeping 4 weeks of entries. I don't need that much, so how
can I reduce the number of weeks kept in this logs? I tried to change
the /etc/logrotate.conf file (rotate 4 -> rotate 2) with no success.
