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.
