The article did not mentioned what are the resource types that need to be created.
I have seen some articles that shows a successful installation includes
1) physical disk 2) Network name 3) IP Address 4) SQL Server
5) SQL Server agent and 6) Generic Service
in MSCS. Do I need to create all six before I run setup.exe?

You need to create a separate resource group and have a disk resource in it. That is all you need to have before setup. Setup will create the network name, the Ip address, the SQL Server resource, the SQL Server Agent resource and the Full Text resource.
