Installing the card in the 4500 while it is powered on shouldn't pose any great problems although I would recommend that you make reasonable effort to reduce the potential impact if the switch is affected i.e. schedule the install out of core hours.
Edit : for thoroughness it would probably be a good idea to search on the card product ID and check the datasheet.
Hope that helps,

Thanks, Sudo. Unfortunately, I picked the wrong slot. No lights came on when I inserted the card so I checked the 4510 log:
000616: *Sep 23 09:13:14.117: %C4K_CHASSIS-3-LINECARDNOTVALIDINSLOT: Module WS-X 4424-GB-RJ45 is not supported in slot 10, try slots 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9.
When I get a sec, I'll try one of the other slots. I also have another s4506 gbic' card to place. Now, I'm wondering if I'll have room for both. When I got the 4510, one of the techs said that one slot would not work because it was designated for a supervisor card in case we should ever want to add another supe engine for backup\redundancy.
Well, no service interruption is a good thing and the switch survived so another positive! I'm sure the next time will be fine.
Slots 5 and 6 are reserved for the supervisor modules, as per what the tech said.
Regarding the log entry you received; I encountered problems with a 6500 chassis once that didnt like having a module inserted due to the power drain of all the others, maybe ensuring you have enough wattage could help. Looking at the details I could find there doesnt appear to be suggestions/restrictions on the slot you should use for your card I would suggest one closer to the top of the chassis if possible, no evidence to back this up but it seems to me that the power starts at module 1 then 2 etc. but as I said no evidence just my assumptions and what my experience with the 6500s suggest.
Anyway, hope that helps and good luck with the next attempt.
PS. please consider using the correct answer option if any post resolved your question.
Thanks for the reply. I successfully added a 10/100/1000 blade from a 4006 into slot 9. I'm going to open a TAC with Cisco (now that I've finally got the contract number for the device) and find out why slot 10 appears to be unavailable.
* When the Supervisor Engine V is used in the Cisco Catalyst 4510R chassis, slot 10 (FlexSlot) will support a subset of line cards: the 2-port GBIC (WS-X43 02-GB) and Access Gateway Module (WS-X4604-GWY). Future Supervisor Engines will allow slot 10 to accommodate any and all line cards.
That could explain why your 4424-GB-RJ45 is not supported in slot 10...
