Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The main Fedora gnome menu icons are located in /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve. I think all you need to do is copy the Redhat icon to the right subdirectory and give it the same name as the Fedora icon (after backing up the Fedora icon ).
By the way, I moved your thread to the Fedora forum, so that it gets more exposure.

I spoke to soon. In /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve there are folders for different size icons, and none of them are the actual fedora icon, there are many that link to that icon though, which is really located at /usr/share/icons/hicolor/24x24/apps (where 24x24 can be any of the sizes for icons). I backed up that fedora icon and replaced it with the red hat. The icon is called fedora-logo-icon.png (and is originally found at /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/24x24/apps/redhat-icon-panel-menu.png).
I have changed the icon for all sizes, and cannot find an icon or link to an icon that is the fedora f, however it still appears as the application menu icon. It did change System>About Fedora to show the hat.
I did this, but it was the other way around -- I changed the hat to the "f" in FC4.
It worked, but I had to change all the different sizes before the icon on the panel changed.
The FC5 logo is 'fedora-logo-icon.png' and is located in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/NxN/apps (where NxN is the size). If you replace all the different sizes of this icon with what is called 'icon-panel-menu.png' from FC4 (located in /usr/share/icons/bluecurve/NxN/apps), the icon in the panel should change. Or at least it worked for me in reverse in FC4!
