Ocsinventory-ng (http://www.ocsinventory-ng.org/index.php?page=English) 
has agents that will report the hardware/software/network config from 
all of the computers.  Glpi will take this and let you manually add 
other equipment and information.

There are Centos-compatible rpms for both in this repository:

configure the EPEL repo for some perl/php modules.
