Well I have been doing this for a while now (Using Enterprise Library Logging and Exception Handling with BizTalk 2004)
and I happened to google it (how did this turn into a verb?) one fine day and found this great blog by Andy Morrison on the topic.  

Remember to strong name your Enterprise Library assemblies before starting this.  Here's an article by Tom Hollander about strong-naming your Enterprise Library assemblies.

I remember when Enterprise Library first came out and I was thinking of using it with BizTalk 2004 I thought that it would be a huge challenge considering BizTalk is not your run of the mill application.  After about 5-10 minutes figuring out what
configuration files to use in BizTalk (<installation folder>\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004\BTSNTSvc.exe.config)
I was up and running with the Logging Block.  Happy Logging.

I'm trying to use the enterprise library logging block with biztalk. To be able to do this, i need to put some assemblies in the gac. This works. However, i also need the configuration files to be editable through the config tool. so customers can choose different logging settings, and i can't get this to work. Either i can visually edit the config files, and the logging won't work, or the logging works but the config tool can't find my settings in the app config file. Have any of you encountered this?

I have not experienced this. Can you describe in more detail what the issue is? Is it a file locking issue? The BizTalk config file (BTNTSvc.exe.config) is always being read once a host instance of BizTalk is running. Remember to shutdown the service if you need to access and modify the config file(s).
