If the edge of the board is already strait, and you just want to square up the edge, I should think the #4 would be fine. If you are both trying to straiten the edge and square the edge at the same time, then a #5, but I think straitening and then squaring is easier.

Personally, I prefer using a aux fence in a vice instead of a shooting board. I find it much easier, especially with the metal hand planes (vs. wooden hand planes.)
