Which note?  The dialog you get just before partitioning disks says:

  PALO, the PArisc LOader, requires a partition of type 'f0' on the disk
  it is loaded from.  Therefore, if this disk will contain the boot
  loader you must create a partition of type 'f0' of at least 16MB.
  A further important restriction is that the partition you load your
  kernel from must reside within the first 2GB of your disk.  The kernel
  lives in /boot, so you can either keep your root file system within the
  first 2GB, or you can create a small partition and mount it as /boot.

and the install manual says something similar.

The F0 partition is used by palo; there isn't any obvious file system on
it you can access from Linux, but it is used.
