You should probably upgrade, there are no more security updates for fc4.

Could be a semi-important entry in the System Event Log (SEL).

You can list the sel with ipmitool (assuming that the 1650 has ipmi and that 
the fc4 ipmi driver supports it).

# yum install OpenIPMI
# modprobe ipmi_si ipmi_devintf ipmi_msghandler
...wait a few seconds
# ipmitool sel list

good luck,
