On a fedora system the example file is located "/usr/share/vim/vim63/vimrc_example.vim". You can use that one as is or edit it to your own preferences. However by just copying it like:

cp /usr/share/vim/vim63/vimrc_example.vim /home/username/.vimrc
It will provide a great template or you may even like it as is.
