I see a lot about DNS built into freeIPA.

Im installing via yum on centos6.4

Do I just ignore the DNS part since we have our own DNS servers? Or does
freeIPA still need local DNS entries?

You don't need to run an IPA-specific DNS server, it just makes certain things somewhat easier.

Also, im not sure I follow “clients” I see it explains that you can add
clients so services and use IPA..

However, does any client that is supposed to authenticate users to
freeIPA, need to be added as a client?

A client is any machine you want to use the IPA server for authentication (and authorization). A separate enrollment script is provided, ipa-client-install, that is used to provision and configure the client to work against IPA, by default using sssd.

Or is there just an ldap.conf file that tells the client to auth a user
against the freeIPA server.

You are best off using our install script. You can opt to not use sssd if you really want, or you can configure things manually. We recommend sticking with the defaults, and using sssd.
