Prior to installing Arch? [SOLVED]

I'm pretty new to *nix systems and been using Ubuntu and Debian for like 6 months but think it's pretty much 'overkill' using any of these systems. I've always been in need of a simple system, with a simple X where I can get the necessary programs myself. Yesterday I read about Arch (and well. It got me). So I decided to try it out. However I believe I need to configure most the driver by hand, am I right? So I just wanted a helping hand on that one.

I'm using an Acer Aspire 3003 LMI with:

Sempron Mobile 3000+ 1800MHz

512MB

80GB

3 x USB 2.0 ports

1 x Type II CardBus PCMCIA slot

1 x RJ-11 jack for modem

1 x RJ-45 jack for Ethernet

15" LCD con 1024X768 pixel resolution - 16.7 milioni di colori

XGA 128MB SIS shared

Integrated Audio System

DVD Dual Layer (+ e -)    # This one is actually a dvd-burner. 
                                         # Don't know if other info is bad.
Modem PSTN Interno 56K ITU V.92 data/fax

LAN: gigabit Ethernet 10/100 Mbps

So what do I need at hand in order to complete the installation?

Anything else I should bear in mind?

Regards
Richard

I've scanned through that. Didn't help me to much though.

I have the system up and running now though! Boots real quick, but I still need to tune it pretty much before I can start working  :cry:

Thanks for the help!
