Fedora Core 4 reached its end of life sometime in 2006 so there are no more upgrades or support for it from the Fedora project. This is why you are no longer able to receive any more upgrades. Fedora 8 is the latest release, so you could upgrade to that. I personally would use CentOS on an important server.
I too have an installation of fedora 6 and it no longer gets updates. But that is b/c it is unsupported and end of life. Only reason I'm sticking with it is b/c newer versions of fedora have issues with Vmware
You will only get updates for about a year after the initial release. One month after F10 is released (Nov 2008?) there will be no more updates for F8. This is why I have switched all my servers over to Centos. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is binary compatible with RHEL. It is free to download and has a five year support life. Current release is 5.1. It "feels" like FC6 and is rock solid. I still run Fedora on my desktop.
