Thanks for the reply.  I have checked klogd(8) and this is what I have found:

########  KLOGD(8)  ########
The argument given to the -c switch specifies the priority level of messages 
which will be directed to the console.  Note that messages of a priority 
value  LOWER than the indicated number will be directed to the console.
###########################

So if I am reading this correctly then I would need to set something lower 
then what the is set for iptables.  Correct?

Thanks again for the reply.  You have pointed me in a direction I haven't 
thought of.
