Well, one of the biggest differences is that Fedora Core 4 is free, whereas you have to pay for a licence for Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 That said, there are clones of RHEL4 that are available for free (all perfectly legit thanks to the GPL), such as CentOS4.

Fedora is a free, frequently updated, community linux distribution that is well suited to home/small business desktops and small scale or non mission critical server applications. Redhat Enterprise Linux is a commercial linux distribution, aimed at enterprise use, which uses developments trialled in Fedora but is updated less frequently to minimise disruption. If you want a cutting edge system you want Fedora, if stability and ease of maintenance is more important you want RHEL (or a free clone of it).

At this point in time the two strands are unusually close to each other because Fedora Core 4 has been out for a while (Core 5 is due soon) and RHEL4 is still very new by the standards of RHEL.

The answer to that will depend on exactly which piece of software it is. There are enough differences between the two that some binaries for one won't work on the other (though many will) but if you have access to source code then anything that works with one ought to be possible to recompile on the other.
