If you want a thin client setup (diskless machines only run X and log 
into the server), the easy way is to install the k12ltsp version that 
has a centos base (version 5-EL  from the download link here
http://k12ltsp.org/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page).  If you want to NFS 
mount disks from the server and run everything on the clients or boot a 
single image on a cluster, look at http://drbl.sourceforge.net/.
You can do either of these with the tools included in Centos yourself, 
but since it is fairly complicated it is probably worth trying one or 
both of these first.
