Both OS's will cluster quite easily.  However mixing them may give you
some issues.  In Fedora Core 4 the default version of gcc is 4.0.0. 
However in Fedora Core 3 it is gcc-3.4.2 (I think).  The two are NOT
binary compatible regardless of what some people say.

Personally I like Core 4 much better than Core 3.  However it sounds
like your application (Gaussian) only works right with Core 3.  I
suggest going with Core 3.

With that said.  I have seen a few stability issues with Core 3.    I
have a small cluster running Core 4 machines and they all have an
uptime of about 3 months...would be longer but the power grid here in
Albany NY is quite pathetic.

Well that certainly wasn't a Gaussian specific answer but I hope there
was some useful information any how.
