Can I put some sort of a route statement into my fedora server that
will link these two so that I can talk to the 192 devices from my pc
on my 10 network? I use my fedora box as my router and dhcp server.
Eh, the *proper* way to do this is to throw a second NIC into your Fedora
server and configure it to the 192.168.0 network.  Then Fedora will happily
route between the two.

You really shouldn't mix subnets on the same segment.
It may not be a best practice, but I can't think of anything that
actually breaks - or is even an issue on a small private network - if
you overlay subnets on the same wire. VLANs are a nicer approach but
then you need a more expensive switch and if the Linux box is on a trunk
connection you have to find some elusive documentation about how to
configure subinterfaces.
