Oops, looks like I screwed up the reply.  

Yes, in my project I created a FileInfo that points to the web.config file. 

In Mike's blog, he's doing a different method using an assembly attribute as described in
the configuration attributes section of the config page, which does not require specifying
the file. 

Hope that helps!

 Thanks, I’ll try that out when I get a chance.  But actually, I did figure 
this out last night – I just needed to call XmlConfigurator.Configure
(FileInfo) and explicitly tell the configurator where the xml file was.  I 
asked Mike Knowles about it and he updated his blog article about it with a 
full source code project specifically for sharepoint:
 Thanks for the help!

 Try enabling log4net internal debugging to see if something is going wrong. 
How to enable internal debugging is described in 
http://logging.apache.org/log4net/release/faq.htmlAnd make sure that the 
process running your application has permission to 
write/create "F:\arrowlog.txt".

 I've done some investigating, and here's what I noticed.  My web parts (in 
my dev environment) are capable of creating and writing to the file that I 
specified in the RollingFileAppender, so it shouldn't be any problem with 
permission to that file.  That makes me think that it must be a problem with 
log4net getting the configuration information in the first place.  But I'm 
just theorizing, in hopes that this will help someone help me figure out 
what's going on.- Tomas

Hi Tomas,

I'm trying to get the same working. What is the file whose name need to pass 
in to the call XmlConfigurator.Configure(FileInfo). Does the FileInfo points 
to the Web.config file, which contains the log4.net configurations? Mike's 
blog still does not show how to pass in the file name (or what is the file
