I'm not sure if it's possible at all, as fedora4 may be way to old. Did you try to ignore dependencies with rpm --nodeps

@iceid, ya I tried the --nodeps option but dependencies are always missing
Now I've dropped the thought of installing chrome on Fedora4, now I am trying to update firefox 1.0.4 to the latest version and now its a new headache. :|
There is no "Check for update" option in the help menu and when I tried to install it by downloading the firefox.tar.bz file, its not working again.
I need help there.....

WHY !!!!!!
Fedora 4 is SO OLD THAT NOTHING NEW WILL RUN

fedora 4 is also so old that yum WILL NEVER work - seeing as the repos are DEAD and have been mover to the historical archives


if you RELAY want the headache of fedora 4
Then BUILD ALL CODE from the source - but nothing NEW will build unless you update the OS

----- added-----
also you can not just try to install fedora 10 rpm's in fedora 4
they ARE incompatible
update to a supported version
fedora 12 is the current and fedora 13 ill be out in a few months
