Depending on the distribution

Example:
- Edit /etc/network/interfaces
- Remove "auto ppp0", the configuration for this interface will remain, but it won't activate automatcally, you'll have to "ifup ppp0" later.

If you can't find this file (because it might be somewhere else depending on your distribution), you can't try to discover it by yourself.
Try:
cd /etc
grep -ri "auto ppp0" *
This is a bit dirty, but you might get results
If you don't get it, it'll look for "auto ppp0" in all your conf files.

Hi
I think you shouldn't have deleted it... hope you have a backup

On a redhat-based distro, I guess you should have modified the file instead
- Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0
- Modify the following value : ONBOOT=yes to ONBOOT=no

Then, either you reboot and check ppp0 is down after reboot, either you simply disable it with "ifdown ppp0" (anyway, you should check your modification remains OK after reboot)

Sorry, redhat-based distros aren't the ones I know better :)
