RH7 does come with a version of CIPE, but I'd recommend removing
it and just installing the latest from source.   Their code works, but
the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ciped file is set up to use some values from 
/etc/sysconf,
taking only the key from /etc/cipe/options.    RedHat puts many other
network configuration values there so it might make sense but I did
not see any GUI or other handy way to set them so splitting up the
config seems confusing.   If you keep their scheme, be sure you
understand where to change the setup.  You can figure it out by
reading the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ciped script.
