Use fdisk to partition your disk how you want it (i.e. boot into rescue 
mode first), then install FC11, it will not be able to swap things around :)

There should be a be an option in Anaconda that says something like "Let 
fedora organize the disk layout" or "Let user organize the disk layout" 
(God forbid!)

I cannot understand why you even have the option to create custom disk 
layout if it's simply going to try an out smart you when you're done.
