I have a campaign setting stuck in my head, but my D&D playing friends all live across the country now, and I can't really think how to go about it.
Well, there are a number of ways to do this.
I've run pen and paper games with IRC alone. It sort of works, but it's better if you don't need to have a map...
There are programs that allow you to game with people. I've used "fantasy grounds" though I don't know how well it works for 4th.
You could run it with skype, or other video chat option.
I have friends who use google wave to play on.
There are websites which are dedicated to it as well.
