[rancid] Rancid - Changing Config Backup Directory

We setup rancid and, more specifically Git, to automatically push the local repo commit by rancid to the remote repo.  This eliminates having to mount filesystems and gives you a nice backup.  Plus, if the remote repo has a GUI, you can have "pretty" access to your backups.

only "clone"ing in git retains your history (ie: is complete).  which is
why i suggested switching.
