There's nothing which would prevent using CentOS 4 in the VM. There's no 
requirement that a VM on a Fedora host contains a Fedora guest. (And CentOS 
is closely related anyway.) I don't see why you'd use FC4 in the VM rather 
than CentOS 4 unless you really need those packages which are newer in FC4 
or FC4 updates than in the current CentOS 4 updates (and repos like kde-
redhat don't provide the updates you need).
