That's true for a dedicated machine, an a good suggestion.

However, on a general use machine I want the newer stuff. ;-) I was more
thinking the "best of both worlds" with a VM.
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).

The original poster specified Fedora, I took him at his word.
