Finally, my nightmare with migrating to FC3 is over! 
Hallelujah!  Angels are singing!  Here's what I did
(thanks to everyone who helped out):

1) Installed FC3 via NFS to 5 classroom servers (no
firewall, no SELinux options).
2) Configured one classroom server to export /home to
the others.  Used Webmin.
3) Created all the users' accounts via Webmin batch
4) Configured the other classroom servers to mount
/home via NFS.  Used Webmin again.  (First add the
/home server to hosts file via Webmin, then mount
5) Copied group, gshadow *(that's new), passwd &
shadow files from /etc/ on the /home server to /etc/
on the other servers.
6) And it worked.
