puts, p and print are directed to STDOUT, so a simple redirect in your
production.rb will do:

STDOUT.reopen("log/request.log", 'a+')

That will do, unless mongrel is using STDERR to output to console,
which I doubt.

Are you plaining serve mongrel directly to the world? why not apache
or lighty? or even nginx?

A suggestion: stop cross-posting between rails and mongrel list. If
the problem is mongrel related, post here, if rails related, there,
but try one place at a time.
