wvdial and consol

Hey im having a peculiar issue with another of my linux boxes. The linux that is on this computer is a os that i created using the lfs books and the blfs books. 'Note it it very minimal' im trying to get a dial up connection working proplery with it and im using wvdial but i keep getting disconnected after only a few seconds of being connected to my isp. the error im getting is a pppd error 16 the modem hung up
it then tells me to check the /var/log/messages file for info but this file does not exsist. I have ppp and pppd installed and wvdial , Im wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this or if i need to install somthing elese like the dhcp stuff ??
