The Network Startup Resource Center currently has a lab that walks 
participants through installing and getting rancid running as part of a 
“network monitoring and management” course. Base operating system 
will be Ubuntu rather than RedHat/CentOS but as Chris mentioned the 
configuration/running bits are the same across operating systems.

You can find the lab at 
and the rest of the course at 

The course does assume you have access to a lab layout similar to what 
is listed in the opening presentations but the rancid bit should be easy 
to tune to your environment.

Disclaimer: I do work with the NSRC.
