I remember several changes on our site that broke old install isos. I
recently tested some of them and afaik those before 2009.02 don't work
because that kernel is too old for our glibc or something similar. Or some
day we had changed the repo layout etc..

In general Arch is moving to fast to keep old isos and install working.
