In the past there was a wonderful "Beginner's Guide" with detailed a detailed
install procedure with expanded explanations for each step. When the arch
installer went away, it was removed shortly thereafter. It would be worth
considering resurrecting the page.

The manual install is by far the way to go as it can be tailored to whatever
you need. The only downside is if you have not done one before, the existing
Installation guide is much too terse to be of much use for your first manual
install. Somewhere there is a happy medium between the Beginner's guide and
what we have as the Installation guide at present.

Good luck with your Arch install. It is by far the best Linux distribution
that you will ever install.
