Fedora names its releases "FC4-test1", "FC4-test2", "FC4-test3" (which
are test-only releases), "FC4" (which is the general-purpose release),
then the next round of testing begins with "FC5".

Since FC4 has been released, the FC4-test releases are outdated and
should not be used. (And FC4 should be just FC4-test3 with bugfixes and
newer versions of some programs.) So you want the normal
FC4-ppc-discX.iso files. And yes, there are four CD ISOs: you should
download them all.

Hope this helps,
