[CentOS] Verizon DSL + rp-pppoe + CentOS 6.5

I've just upgrade a home server to CentOS 6.5 with a new dual-core 
processor and mobo.

I see that with the CentOS 6.x release rp-pppoe can be run as a daemon.

I've looked through some online one-page setup notes for rp-pppoe, but 
nowhere is there a discussion of running it as a daemon.

Until now, I've cobbled an ifcfg-ppp0 file and placed it in 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. The connection has worked; however, I'd 
like to have a proper and coherent implemention on this iteration.

If anyone has experience or insight on this setup, I would appreciate it.

Much thanks,
