i just placed the new "Core Dump" TEST ISO
to the mirrors eg:

some days testing should be enough, 
I tested them in kvm-qemu and didn't find an issue.

This ISO contains packages that are in testing repository.
So don't be suprised by getting package is newer then repository on first 
pacman -Syu.
Those errors will be gone when we moved in the packages, which will happen 


- kernel usage
- pacman 3.1.3 usage
- RAM usage has been revisited, these are the new recommendations:
     * FTP ISO, CORE ISO: arch boot image
       160 MB RAM x86_64/i686 (all packages selected, with swap partition)
     * CORE ISO: lowmem boot image
       64 MB RAM x86_64/i686 (all packages selected, with swap partition)

- fixed intel wireless automatic module loading (arch boot image)
