Thanks Guenther and Herbert. That did it perfectly!
 I guess I should have checked the wiki first, but that wasn't even in my mind since I had set up this system before there was a FC4 recipe in the wiki.
 Thanks again!

You need to exclude the kernel into your guest fedora repos as
described in the HowTo:

Simply add the "exclude=kernel kernel-smp" into your
fedora-updates.repo files.

If you want to remove the kernel, install the vps-fakekernel packages
supplied by the CRU repository as described in the HowTo:
