Then what would be the cause when you have that file (w/ proper
permissions) and all you get is this:

[root@kramer cfandre]# lastb

btmp begins Mon Feb  8 08:41:06 1999
[root@kramer cfandre]# ls -l /var/log/btmp
-rw-------   1 root     root            0 Feb  8 08:40 /var/log/btmp
[root@kramer cfandre]# 

Anyone have any ideas? Does this work for anyone?
