Find in the current fedora release mirrors. Some mirror might be storing fedora 4 releases still in their directories.

Or you can look around with the local LUG in your city if someone is still using it.

fedora 10 ( soon 11) in no way shape or form resembles fedora 4 ( except for a better gnome desktop) Kde went from 3.5 to 4.2
there is built in support for wireless and "flash usb" drives -- your ipod . fedora started using "pulse audio" in fedora 8 .
there is a new package manager -- introduced in 9 or 10 .There is a new "NetworkManager" replacing "Network" service.
fedora 10 uses gcc 4.3 -- fedora 4 i think might have had gcc3.4 ( or 4.0 at the most)
most old code ( older than 2 years) will need editing in order to build . if it built using gcc4.1 it still may need editing for gcc 4.3 ... no and on ...

think of it as going from Windows 98 to Windows 7

in fedora 10 the root login is disabled
-- this is one of the changes , in fedora 9 there was a nag screen warning you in 10 it is disabled
use " su -" from the terminal to launch a program as root
if you search the forum there is a hack to " sort - of - fix it " but there can be unintended consequences

basically your tutorial is well out of date,

with fedora 10 (and most distros now) just dont log in as root,

if you need to do anything as root in graphical stuff it will ask you for the password, on the command line use su -
or sudo if it is set up

You can still login as root on a non-gui shell, and then launch another X session on the next available screen (would be :1 as I assume). Then again, most GUI config tools can be launched from any user account, though a root password will asked.
