We didn't test FGS against Fedora Core 4 yet.

You can try to do :

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.4 /usr/lib/stdc++.so.5

If the symbolic link doesn't help, you could try to copy
/usr/lib/libstd++.so.5.0.x from another machine installed with Fedora
Core < 4. Don't forget to create the symlink : /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
-> /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.5.

(I could send it to you if you don't have access to another linux box
having libstdc++.so.5) 

To see if all binary's dependencies are ok, use this command: 

$ ldd $FGS_HOME/www/cgi-bin/php4

will output the list of DLL (.so) files required to run php4 executable.
