If you are using yumex, click on the folder icon - this gives you
the group view instead of the package view. From their, you can go
down the tree one level and install the standard group packages with
one checkbox. You still have to open the group to get the optional
packages, but I believe you have to do that with yum as well.

Is this what you are after, or am I missing something?
