PPPoE Issue After Upgrade

I'm trying to move from a pfSense 1.2.3 box to a pfSense 2.0.1 box. I have everything working except our PPPoE DSL connection. I think I've configured it the same on the new box, but the settings screen is slightly different. Is there anything that changed between 1.2.3 and 2.0.1 that would be likely to cause issues with PPPoE?
Here are the mpd.conf configuration files from our old and new configuration. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide that may help or any logging I can turn on to help me troubleshoot.

What is in the PPP system log? (See Status -> System Logs and click on PPP tab.)
What is reported in the PPP log after you go to Status -> Interfaces and click on the Reconnect button beside PPPoE?

Strange, I'm not sure what I did differently, but when I moved the DSL line back over to the new box to test and get a log file, PPPoE worked. Oh well, just glad I'll finally get to enjoy all the goodies 2.0 has to offer.
