Couple of things occur to me.
First, when you say your box does not boot do you mean that it does not
recognize the disk as bootable? In that case, I'd be inclined to get
myself a commercially-produced F11 disk. (CheapBytes.com, for example)
Or that it does not POST? In that case .... :-(
Second, as you have an Nvidia card, you will probably have to boot with
the vesa option -- its one of the choices on the boot menu, and then
install the driver later on.
