Are you starting with a standard Centos?  If so, I'd recommend starting 
over with one of the 5-EL versions from here:
which is Centos plus what you need to boot thin clients (and some other 
extra stuff).

The default install sets up eth1 as the 'outside' network and expects 
the clients only on a separate private network on eth0.  You'll have to 
make a few changes and coordinate how DCHP is supposed to work if you 
want a flat LAN on a single NIC.

There's quite a bit of information on the wiki at
