By default, a CentOS minimal install (headless) doesn't set up the networking and has to be done manually.  You might also have to open up the firewall and tweak selinux abit - but that's easily google-able.

Did 3.3.0 make it to EPEL yet?

During install you are supposed to check the 'set up networking' box
where you can set the options.  For a wired server you might want to
just turn of NetworkManager and be sure you have the right things in
the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth? file.

I found a web page (don't have the URL at the moment) that described installing backupc on Centos 6.3 and got it installed. I set up apache from my old notes but right now I can't get my browser to go to backuppc admin page. It's not authenticating even though I know I have the user and password correct.

Backuppc is in the EPEL repository.  You are likely to want other
things from there too.
