What is this rawhide thing?

I am trying to install FC4 from dvd onto a Dell PowerEdge SC420. The
graphical installation fails, which I think is explained by Bugzilla
#161242, which admits to a problem with x11 and vesa adapters. This
talks about a fix having been imported to rawhide - but what is this
rawhide thing? Does it provide an updated dvd iso image for FC4? Bear
in mind that I don't have a system installed as yet, so an updated
xorg-x11 rpm is no use to me, nor can I use yum or up2date.
Unfortunately I need to use the graphical installation because I am
trying to install to a pair of sata disks configured with software
raid-1, and the text version of disk druid doesn't seem to support this.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
