Easy.  Try:

# aptitude ulogd

This puts firewall logs into a custom log file - see /etc/ulogd.conf

You need to have a kernel that contains the ipt_ULOG module.  Most of the
new ones have it.  You also need a statement like `-j ULOG --ulog-prefix
"iptables:"' in your iptables startup script (instead of -j LOG).
