Any suggestions?

Problems with your burner, or the blank discs?

Try burning it at a slower speed.

Thanks for the suggestion(s).

I guess my dvd drive is going flaky. I just repeated (almost) the same command as before:
  # dvdrecord -dao -speed=0 dev=/dev/dvd Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso
but this time the disk had no errors with rawread/dd and the pre-install media check passed.

The only change I made to the command was to add the "-dao -speed=0" options, which are actually the defaults, as far as I can tell, so I doubt that made any difference. The actual burning mode and speed reported during the burn were the same as before.

At least it's a huge win to be able to check it before re-booting.

Anyway, F11 is installed, and now I'm merrily pounding my head trying to get things configured properly again.
