Yes, that's beacuse the installer package is still not updated in the core
repo, although there shouldn't be any problem to get a successful
installation now. As the grub-gfx package is provided with the ext4 and the
big inode size patches it will install and update the MBR correctly (but the
installation script will use grub-gfx instead of grub).

I'm uploading a new "archlinux-2009.01-beta4-core-x86_64.iso" as the old one
didn't worked (at least for me, the kernel26 package got corrupted or
something) (and so the "Checksums" file is updated too). Yesterday's script
could not upload "archlinux-2009.01-beta4-core-x86_64.img" because of the
space quota in the ftp account, so I'll upload it somewhere else.

I've tested these images: archlinux-2009.01-beta4-{core,ftp}-x86_64.iso,
archlinux-2009.01-beta4-{core,ftp}-i686.iso. All worked fine, no problems. I
can't test the USB images right now. Isolinux images do work too.

P.S.: In about an hour the new core should be up.
