Get Tabs working with CCK

When creating custom content types, you can group similar fields to make things a bit easier one the eyes. Going one step further you can break up the content type into separate tabs which will reduce scrolling time.

It's fairly easy to set up but there is a bug so I thought I should post this. Basically, the bug leaves the Help text out of the newly created tabs.

The modules I installed to get tabs working:
- Tabs 6.x-1.2 tabs-6.x-1.2.tar.gz (http://drupal.org/project/tabs)
- CCK Fieldgroup Tabs 6.x-1.0 (http://drupal.org/project/cck_fieldgroup_tabs)


To fix use the patch given here: http://drupal.org/node/559850

This is the file that is modified:
/var/drupal/sites/all/modules/cck_fieldgroup_tabs/cck_fieldgroup_tabs.module
