I need to be able to setup a bonded interface quickly without referencing documentation.  

is there a man page, a script something that comes stock in redhat to help with this ?

Link to man page below, but config should look something like configs below

https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Deployment_Guide/s2-networkscripts-interfaces-chan.html

ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
USERCTL=no
ONBOOT=yes
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=<MAC>
NM_CONTROLLED=no Bond config

ifcfg-eth1
DEVICE=eth0
USERCTL=no
ONBOOT=yes
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=<MAC>
NM_CONTROLLED=no Bond config

ifcfg-bond0
DEVICE=bond0
IPADDR=x.x.x.x
NETWORK=x.x.x.x
NETMASK-x.x.x.x
GATEWAY=x.x.x.x
USERCTL=no
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
NM_CONTROLLED=no
IPV6INIT=no

great answer however I was hoping to be able to do this in a datacenter where we do not have access to the web.  I was hoping there would be a man page with perhaps an example of this in it.

Memorizing this entire page is not what I wanted to do this sunday :)
