*Install quagga and rancid

sudo apt-get install rancid rancid-cgi quagga

*Enable bgpd in /etc/quagga/daemons

*Hook up your Quagga.conf with all the fun bgp configuration bits. Search on
the intarwebs or man pages for configuration details.

*Set up a user with vtysh as their shell.

*Set up the rancid cloginrc file with the login stuff for your quagga router
using the user with vtysh access. To Randy's point, it can certainly do
ssh... but Rancid certainly uses "some abhorrent language's libraries".

*Edit the configuration for the looking glass CGI /etc/rancid/lg.conf

*Tweak out the CGI to be less horrible.
