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.

If I might make a stupid suggestion...go get one of those CD drive
cleaning disks and try it.  It may be that the lens on the drive is just
dusty.  That can lead to all kinds of silly weirdness.  It's bitten me.

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