[icecast] icecast permissions

I'm told not to run Icecast as root but am unable to run as a normal user
because my log files are owned by root in /var/log/icecast.

even if I change their permissions to 777 it defaults back to 755 and i'm
out of luck.

Can someone tell me the best way to approach running icecast as a user?

Also, is there a way to automatically start icecast?  When I put it in my
startup (webmin-based) it just scrolls "you can run but you can't hide" over
and over and almost hangs my system.

Any help would be appreciated (thanks to all who have helped so far).
