and while you are at it INSTALL the current fedora 13
fedora 11 is dead and unsupported and hit End Of Life a few months back

then in about 4 to 5 months install the then current fedora 14 .

On the contrary - probably not broken at all. I started getting this on my Dell after a couple of years use.
I just ignored it - the disk errors were a different matter all together ...

How old is the laptop/battery?
May not help but you could try a "battery calibration cycle" like the following.
