The way most people who care about archiving their logs take care of it is 
to configure a separate syslog server, and then point m0n0wall at it.  Then 
your logs will be on some disk somewhere else and easily used for 
reporting, analysis, and the like (not to mention getting dumped to some 
backup media).
