[arch-general] Step 3: Configure X- B: Input hotplugging

I think I have got it this time, :-). Here are the questions:

I would like to use input hotplugging. So, I need to configure it.

Are these the correct commands to run, in this order:
# pacman -S xf86-input-evdev
# usr/sbin/groupadd -g 81 dbus
# usr/sbin/useradd -c 'System message bus' -u 81 -g dbus -d '/' -s
/bin/false dbus
# /etc/rc.d/hal start

Or just:
# pacman -S xf86-input-evdev
# /etc/rc.d/hal start

After running the correct command sequence listed above (whichever one
it is), it seems that I need to "Add the hal daemon to the DAEMONS
array in /etc/rc.conf to start it at every boot." I do not know how to
do this?

Thanks, sorry for the confusion.
