I didn't say yum had check boxes - Adel was asking about doing a
group install from a GUI.

OK - I understand better. You are right, the group view will only
check the standard group, the same as yum groupinstall does. You
then have to select the optional packages. An install optional
package, or eve a check box in the column header line would be nice.
It is not something I would use, but that is beside the point.
