I think you missed the point here,  as archlinux users TU/Dev's we don't
know what archbang does behind the "scenes" so because it still uses
archlinux packages you can say we can help these guys on our forums. But
because they do some special stuff we actually can't.

So i would rather point out that the get redirected to archbang and get
help there.
