Skip FC4. It was a decent enough release, but at this point, it's actually
impossible to do an FC4 install and bring it up to the latest security
patches without jumping through many hoops -- and the result still being a
almost two releases behind.

You should be able to boot with an FC5 (or, momentarily, FC6t2) install CD
and pick "upgrade" and have everything go just fine.

Personally, I usually find it faster to configure my systems with a separate
/home partition, and (after backing up any critical config files from /etc,
which I try to minimize) then you can choose to do a new install but
/partition with Disk Druid "manually", leaving the former /home partition
unformatted but reformatting and overwriting the rest.
