Not without further testing ;-) It's one step to enter a chroot, but a
other to step out again (AFAIK the installer script looks for SUCCESS
or similar in /tmp/grub.log, and which /tmp is affected? The chroot'ed
or the ISO-root?
These are things we should carefully research/fix for the next ISOs (>
2009.01) - either by complete (re)check archlinux-installer or on aif.

Currently i think the best way for 2009.01 would be to fix the grub-gfx
package for x86_64.
