Fork and frame compatible?

Does anyone know if you can run a Fox Float 100R with a prophet 2 frame?

The fork I have seen on the prophet 2 is the lefty, which is 140mm. Putting a 100mm fork on there may be a little sketchy. 4cm is beginning to push how much you can add/subtract from the fork length. Then again, you actually need to look into the overall length of the forks, top of the crown to bottom of the leg. My new fork is 130mm while my old was 100, but the overall lengths are close enough that I'm not worried about it.
