It looks like you don't have a partition number 11 on your hard disk.

Try getting a listing of available partitions:
Code:
fdisk -l

hmm... according to that you don't have a hard disk on your primary IDE connector AND the hard disk you do have doesn't have a partition number 11. So there is no reason why it should be possible to create a file systems on partition 11 of the primary master!
