On the top of the page two of schedule D, in part 3, the instruction is to enter the amount of capital gains on the appropriate income-related line of form 1040. The next instruction tells you to proceed to part 4 if you have gains on part one and part two. Since I have no gains in part one, I wasn't sure I could proceed to part 4. That's why it made no sense.

If the normal route would be to proceed to part 4 anyway, then I should be fine. (apart from the unnatural contortions of filling out part 4, but that's worth the savings).
