	Thanks Ray! All it took was:

pacman -r /mnt/rscu -U /mnt/rscu/var/cache/pacman/pkg/bash-4.0.024-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz /mnt/rscu/var/cache/pacman/pkg/readline-6.0.00-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz

chroot .

pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/device-mapper-1.02.33-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/dmraid-1.0.0.rc15-6-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz


	Once you got me over my mental block, recover took all of 30 seconds :p
