The CentOS server would run a service like LDAP or NIS to  
authenticate users and it would also hold the /home directory, which  
it would export to the Fedora server(s) over NFS. When you setup  
Fedora, you have the option to authenticate over NIS or SAMBA or  
LDAP. You can also have it mount /home over NFS from the CentOS  
server. Your network would look like this.

                                   |              |
                               Fedora    Fedora
                              |         |         |          |
                        Client  Client  Client Client
