I seem to recall an HOWTO on that very subject had been discussed in the
list.  If you would search the mailing list archive or the Wiki, I am
pretty sure you will find it.

There are a very good set of third-party RPM for Cyrus imapd you can get
at  Simon Matter, the
maintainer of these RPMs is very helpful and very active on this list.
I am surprised he have not yet answered your question, actually.

I highly recommend you use these RPM.  I have them successfully on one
installtion and I am very satisfied about them.

I don't speak authoritatively, but IMHO this is exactly what this list
is for.

I have seen all of these discussed here.  Ask away, at worst you won't
get an answer !

Good luck with your installation and be sure to have a look at the Wiki!
I wish it had been there when I made my first step with Cyrus :
