You can check the iso file using some command that I forget and
comparing it with a value somewhere.  Argh, that's too vague.

Let's see.  If you run:

sha1sum <file.iso>

and then compare it with this CHECKSUM file:
http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/fedora/linux/releases/test/11-Beta/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-11-Beta-i386-CHECKSUM 

Then you can see if the iso is corrupt or not.

The stuff above regarding the volume name is only an issue (or I'm
pretty sure it is) if you've got a space in the volume name (for example
"my volume".)
