    is this possible? I tried to locate /Library/Logs/PanicReporter according to this link to no avail. I'm not happy with logging using verbose mode and having to retype it all up. I also don't have it in a network of macs to allow for this technique and I feel as if there's a pretty obvious way of capturing these reports that I'm missing. Thanks.

    They're automatically logged already. Just use Console to access them. It's really about as simple as it can get.

    I should've mentioned that console doesn't log my kernel panics or isn't set up to do so. Any help with fixing this or finding another way would be appreciated.

    I've never heard of the console not logging kernel panic. are you sure you are looking in the right log? There are plenty of threads on MacRumors where people show examples of their kernel panics.
