You need to install the very latest beta, it's the first one in which 
Fedora 11 is properly supported.

Install missing modules, as root, by doing commands like this (example 
for Filesys/Df you are currently missing)
     yum install perl-Filesys-Df

Do that until "MailScanner -v" works okay and lists all the "required" 
modules as being present.
Then install the latest beta of MailScanner (it won't do any damage) 
over the top of your current installation, and everything should work 
properly from then on.
