Known issue.

Comment 2 Sandra Moore 2001-01-08 21:51:27 UTC
Help text has been added for the new laptop installation class.

Help text will say:

        Laptop-class installations will install the X Window System and the
        desktop manager(s) of your choice. A laptop-class installation is very
        similar to a workstation-class installation, however additional PCMCIA
        support has been added to this installation class. A
        laptop-class installation removes any Linux-related partitions on all
        installed hard drives (and uses all free unpartitioned disk
        space). All non-Linux-related partitions will be left
        untouched, and you will be able to boot other installed operating
        systems, in addition to Red Hat Linux, after the installation.

Even if this is not in the current beta, the help text has been added.
