If you're looking for something longer life than Fedora / LTSP 5, you could try Debian Lenny or Ubuntu Hardy, both with LTSP 5.  Or you could stick with CentOS / LTSP 4.2.  I know there's also an OpenSuse implementation of LTSP 5, but I don't know much about that distribution or its life cycle.

Somewhere on the LTSP wiki I think there are instructions for how to use an Ubuntu-based chroot environment on any other distro.  There's a guy on the ltsp-discuss list who uses LTSP 5 on CentOS in this way.
