Actually, I think there should be two configurations: One with PATA and 
one with IDE (as long as we use grub, it's easy to have several). The 
installer should somehow remember what choice we made at boot time and 
modify the system's mkinitcpio.conf.

For now, it could be enough to just match archiso to the mkinitcpio 
default configuration, which uses pata.
