I was not aware that there was a CD 4. I believe it states on the release on 3 cds. I've checked multiple mirrors and all only have 3 cd's for the download release. The powerpack that you have to purchase most likely has more CDs

CD4 was part of the pre-public release via BitTorrent to MandrakeClub Members.

It doesn't have any system important files on it so it really doesn't matter whether you have it or not. Everything on it can be picked up through the Software Manager. Why switch?
