Server auth

What service that I could use to make linux clients authenticate users on a linux server???

I want to use fedora core 4.

I will have 15 workstations and 1 server. the server will also run dhcp.

LDAP works. Or you can create one central server with usernames and passwords and push it out via ssh or rsync. I wouldn't suggest NIS though, outdated, old, non-supported.
