They are the recommended partitions. But not necessarily required. Only required partitions are / and swap. I have not tried but with todays resources that systems come with, even swap should not be the bothering.
But these are the partitions that should be sufficient. If you want you can keep /boot on separate partition but do not bother with the others.

Your cd could be corrupt. May be the iso you got from the net was corrupt? Did you check the integrity of the iso?
If the error is at the partitioning step, you could first partition your disk using some Live distribution like Partition Magic or Gparted and then install Fedora on the created partitions.

The file need to be downloaded from the same location where you got your iso. And then use md5sum command to verify the checksum.

Hi,

I found the Fedora 11 from http://www.fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora. Have a look at it. I went through the whole website, but couldn't find a link to download SHA1SUM file..Let me try installing it with VMware. If it didn't work, i vl download the iso again.

Regards,
Anish

Glad you got it working. If its working in Virtual environment, it will probably work on separate install as well.
