The problem with your terminology is that bivariable or multivariable
regression could mean multiple explanatory variables (x's) or multiple
explained varianbles (y's). Log regression could mean logs of the
explained or explanatory variables.  I assumed you meant a single
explained variable which is logged and multeple expalantory variables.

This still leaves the familiar problem of how to deal with -ln(0)-.
short answer: there is no satisfactory answer to that problem.
long answer: search the statalist archive.
