By default, the messages go into a memory buffer. You always can see the
last part  with "dmesg". If you want them in a file, edit /etc/syslog.conf
and change the destination to "file" (and killall -HUP syslogd). You might
as well change ROTATESIZE and ROTATEGENS, and additionally turn off some
logging from other daemons like gsmd (see /etc/init.d/gsmd). The other
possibility might be DESTINATION="remote" and have a syslogd on another PC
accepting the messages.
