With the version of metacity that comes with FC5 you can't disable this
feature.  However, so many people complained about it that the Gnome
developers have released an update that does make it configurable (and
retores the default behaviour to the way it was in 2.12).

You can pick up an RPM of metacity with this patch from the Fedora Core
updates-testing repository:

It's not something I'd ever want, but there are people out there who
never want new windows to take focus from the one they're working in.
