[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).

Thanks!
Wade
