As it happens, I just downloaded the f11 dvd today and ran a check on
it.  I used the program shasum with the checksum file for F11 I
downloaded.

In a directory with both the Fedora iso file and the iso's checksum-file 
present, run the command:

shasum -c checksum-file

This will read the list of checksums in the file, and look for the
files that generated those checksums in the present directory.  It will
then run the same check on them that the checksum was generated with in
the file. It will compare the two checksums and tell you if they are
the same.

Clear as mud? :-)
