IMVHO it would probably be better to redesign the task selection screen 
into a single choice menu similar to this:

| Gnome Desktop Environment (graphical)
| KDE Desktop Environment (graphical)
| LXDE Desktop Environment (graphical)
| Xfce Desktop Environment (graphical)
| Standard Unix environment (text only)
| Basic install (text only)

Moving the cursor over the selections would give brief explanations 
about each option and should probably mention what hardware 
recommendations each option has (3D, RAM, etc.).

Even better if this is done before the partitioning stage so that guided 
partitioning recipes can be checked/adjusted according to the size
