The best help I can offer *without any kinda info on your sys* is TLDP.

more info

log in as root and watch what's going on during dial-up by typing

$ tail -f /var/log/daemon/info

That should be the right file. this will display messages added to this file during the dial-up process. If this doesn't help you, post what was in the file. good luck!
