Can you be more specific about what you'd like to do?  Do you
want to network-boot thin clients as terminals, connect other
machines already running X, or use vnc or nx connections - or
all of the above?  If you are starting from scratch, I'd
recommend installing the k12ltsp-modified version of Centos
instead of adding the features on yourself.  You can find
more info at: http://www.k12ltsp.org/phpwiki/ and the
version to download would be at:
(fedora-based versions are also available).

Also, on the file/print server side, do you want to share
files via NFS to other linux/unix boxes or via samba to
windows clients or both?
