Installed the RC2 in a virtualbox machine, no showstoppers and all the bugs (relating to the i686 iso) seem to have been fixed.
Thanks for the reply about hwdetect.

I just made a diff between archlinux-2009.02-RC2-core-i686.iso and archlinux-2009.02-RC2-core-i686.img. The resulting patch is only 1,2MB. (And yes, using the iso and that patch produces a img with the same md5sum)
Wow this is getting complicated... so are you saying that we should provide xdelta patches from ISO to USB image? What about from ftp ISO to core ISO?
Not really. My intention was just doing it for the testing releases to speed thing up. This should prevent things like "I have change a line in the installer, please download 2GB again and test :-)"
That seems like a lot more work for smaller benefit. In the future, we're going to have a machine setup for building these and will host the ISOs directly from there, so this transfer back and forth will be nonexistent. Would the xdeltas still be useful at that point?
