    I am trying to display the latest post in a category before the comments area. It seems the variable $post is grabbing the the_post data from the get_posts query that is grabbing the latest posts instead of the_post from the actual post which is expected. Any know how I can fix this.

    The code below.

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>		
    
    		<div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    			<h2 class="postheader"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    			<span class="post-info">Posted <?php the_time('F jS Y') ?> at <?php the_time() ?> by <?php the_author() ?> </span>
    			<span class="post-info"><?php edit_post_link('Edit', ' | ', ' '); ?> </span>
    			<div class="entry">
    				<?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this entry <img src="'.$path.'right.png" alt=">>" style="border:0;vertical-align:middle;padding-left:5px;" /></p>'); ?>
    				<?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
    			</div>
    			<div class="divider clear"></div>
    			<span class="postmetadata">
    				<?php if (get_the_tags()) {the_tags( 'Tags: ', ', ', '<br /> ');} //make sure there's no line break if the post doesn't have tags?>
    				Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?>
    			</span>
    		</div>
     	<?php endwhile; ?>
    
        <?php query_posts('cat=4&showposts=5'); if (have_posts()) : ?>
      <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
      <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
        <h3> <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>">
          <?php the_title(); ?>
          </a></h3>
        <span class="post-info">Written on <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?>at <?php the_time('g:i a'); ?>PST - By <?php the_author() ?></span>
      </div>
      <?php endwhile; ?>
      <?php endif; ?>
    
    			<?php if (('open' == $post-> comment_status) && ('open' == $post->ping_status)) {	// Both Comments and Pings are open ?>
    			Follow comments via <?php post_comments_feed_link('RSS 2.0'); ?> feed. <!--You can <a href="#respond">leave a response</a>,--> Create a <a href="<?php trackback_url(); ?>" rel="trackback" title="Trackback URL: <?php trackback_url(); ?>">trackback</a> from your own site.
    			<?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && ('open' == $post->ping_status)) { // Only Pings are Open ?>
    			<br />Responses are currently closed, but you can post a <a href="<?php trackback_url(); ?> " rel="trackback" title="Trackback URL: <?php trackback_url(); ?>">trackback</a> from your own site.
    			<?php } elseif (('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !('open' == $post->ping_status)) { // Comments are open, Pings are not ?>
    			You can follow any responses to this entry through the <?php post_comments_feed_link('RSS 2.0'); ?> feed.
    			<br />You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed.
    			<?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !('open' == $post->ping_status)) { // Neither Comments, nor Pings are open ?>
    			<br />Both comments and pings are currently closed.
    			<?php } ?>
    		</p>
    	<?php comments_template(); ?>
    
    	<?php else: ?>
    
    		<h2 class="center not-found">Not Found</h2>
    		<p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>
    		<?php get_search_form(); ?>
    
    <?php endif; ?>

    (if this doesn't make sense let me know I will try to make it clearer)
