[CentOS] Installing CENTOS 6.1 to Intel notebook

I have a notebook with HM65 Express chipset and
(internal Core i5 2520M) HD Graphics 3000, but
a graphical install of CENTOS 6.1 froze the PC.

I was able to install by selecting “Install with basic
video driver”, but that left the internal display distorted
and the external display not recognized.

I found a fix for the problem at
http://jehurst.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/rhel-6-for-the-clueless-intel-graphics/
but wonder if anyone knows if this problem (of graphical
install freezing) has been fixed in CENTOS 6.2, or
(if not) if RedHat is aware of it.
