    robots.txt logs: results?

    I've discovered that msnbot has crawled my site. I wanted to know the results, I don't understand it too well, is the "...404.. " an error code?: - - [25/Aug/2004:13:03:52 -0400] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 404 640 "-" "msnbot/0.11 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)" - - [25/Aug/2004:13:03:53 -0400] "GET /javascript/inputwrite.html HTTP/1.0" 404 640 "-" "msnbot/0.11 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)"
    The IP I understand, the time stamp I understand, what does "...

    "GET /javascript/inputwrite.html HTTP/1.0" 404 640 "-" "msnbot/0.11

    ..." mean?
    and obviously the (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm) is the crawler.
    In any case, this means that a crawler is trying to index my site?
    Also, do I need to have the robots.txt file?

    Most likely a JavaScript link it couldn't follow hence 404.
