Absolutelly. That's how I installed Arch, BTW, I did it via ssh so
burning a CD was not an option...
I just didn't know there was a script for that. Anyway, I wanted some
explanation about the rationale, as opposed to using a script blindly.
As I said, I'm not good with Bash (I use Perl when I need to cook up
some script for my own use) and reading the source gives me some idea
but there are loose ends...
