I am building some Red Hat Syslog servers to house the syslog output of network gear. So far I have gotten the devices to send syslog data to the server and the server records it. But, it is all going to the "messages" file. How do I send the specific syslog streams to a file that is specific to the system that sent it.

Try rsyslog. It is a drop-in replacement for stock syslogd and able to work with the same configuration file syntax. Your question is answered in their FAQ at http://www.rsyslog.com/Topic3.phtml
