channel numbers or linear

I'm puzzled, and before you ask, yes, I looked at the vast information in the archive--
I have a old FACScan, I collect fluorescence with the log amp as most do---my question is with analysis. If I call up the plots using channel numbers and likewise analyze Rainbow beads and run the data through a standard curve, the values I get are always consistently lower than the standardized values I get if I do the analysis with plots showing linear numbers (graphed on a log scale). Assuming the machine transform is not perfect, which one should I be using?
Maybe the answer was already there but I didn't know what I was looking for?
