I have no idea. It should work, but I really don't know if there are
any runtime dependencies in the FDS FC4 RPM binaries that will break
when run on RHEL4.

I don't think that will be a problem as long as you don't change the
hostname of the machine.
Also note that upgrading could be a problem since you aren't doing a
standard RPM installation to begin with. You might be able to "trick" it
by installing the Fedora RPM and then untarring over top of that.
