I did an offline installation with archlinux-2010.05.16-core-x86_64.iso 
in VirtualBox and it went flawlessly. I also used dm_crypt for the root 
partition and experienced no issues with that either. :)

The new Grub theme used in the installation media is looking very sharp 
too. I love it. :)

Awesome work Dieter!
