Solaris syslog configuation question

www.unixbabuforum.inI have the following instructions: 

Solaris Configuration 

Log in as Root 

Append the following line to /etc/syslog.conf : <TAB> @IP.ADD.RE.SS 

Note: Do not actually type in the word <TAB> 

Refresh Syslog by submitting the following command: 
/etc/init.d/syslog stop 

/etc/init.d/syslog start 

Make the following changes to the /etc/login: 

Go to Line 50 

Change value to SYSLOG=YES 

Go to Line 75 

However, I have a non-technical owner (and I am not a unix expert) that says his box doesn't have /etc/login file. 

Is it enough to create a "login" file - is it important to have this entry specifically on line 50? 

Shouldn't step 4 and 3 be reversed?

www.unixbabuforum.inThat should say /etc/default/login and no the line numbers may not match up. Find the line that has SYSLOG= and make sure that it has SYSLOG=YES.
