Hi RSSIAdmin,
You need to add customvalidator control and code ServerValidate event handler.
For example if you have checkboxes placed in CheckBoxList you can iterate them and detect that one of them is selected:
protected void CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
        {
            args.IsValid = false;
            foreach(ListItem li in CheckBoxList1.Items)
            {
                if(li.Selected)
                {
                    args.IsValid = true;
                    break;
                }
            }
        }

If you have independent CheckBoxes you can write if/then statement to check all of them:
protected void CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
        {
args.IsValid = false;
            if(CheckBox1.Checked)
            {
                args.IsValid = true;
            }
            else if (CheckBox2.Checked)
            {
                args.IsValid = true;
            }
           // else if .... etc...
}
