1) Use yum to strip your system down to the minimal install, use rpm to
install the FC4-equivalent packages, then use yum to add the FC4
packages you removed.

2) Use rpm to get the names of all installed packages, compare that to
the names on the FC4 tree, then use rpm to replace them appropriately.

No guarantee that either method will work though.
