CMAN (the cluster manager) ensures no split brain via fencing:  If you
have two nodes and disconnect the cable on one of them, the remaining
(connected) node will fence the node which was disconnected.

To use it, you need two_node=1 and expected_votes=1 in cluster.conf
(which system-config-cluster correctly sets up for you).

As stated previously: Fencing hardware is *required* for RHCS4.
