Just the timing of the download.  I burned the CD and then 0.3 came out.
I'll try it in qemu.

Give or take the testing repo I'm always up to date!  :)  On my regular
[22:50 kpiche at puffin ~]$ pacman -Q kernel26
[22:50 kpiche at puffin ~]$ 
HOOKS="base udev autodetect ide filesystems"
gives me hda.

The ISO uses pata hook which gives sda.  Obviously my mkinitcpio.conf is
old.  I'm still curious as to what the recommended module is...

I just mean that on first read it sounded like:  "if you have 64M or
more use the low memory image".  Maybe it's just me.
