Well just so you know, centrafuse was made for windows only. so if you plan to go with linux, you are going to need to spend a lot of time with wine or some other emulation software. Just doing a quick google search, I can see that it will be quite a challenge if not impossible.
However, LinuxICE2, and nghost are supported on linux and, IMHO just as awesome (as well as free). Here is the link to the openice page:
EDIT: Here's a thread about running Centrafuse in linux.
