installation walkthrough? [wiki]

i've read the "installation and first steps" guide in the documentation thing, but it isn't really a walkthrough step by step giving complete examples and whatnot for newbies that don't understand what things *should* look like.

is there any such documentation to help newbies such as myself as a walkthrough, at least up to getting it so i can run pacman (my eth0 apparently isn't set up right) and i can boot into windows (i mustn't have set up grub correctly).  if not, i plan on writing up my experience, as a newbie for other newbies, as i figure this stuff out. but i don't want to go thru the trouble if someone else has written something similar.

NOTE:  i understand arch isn't made for newbies.  the point of this post was to see if there was something available as i mentioned (in progress or complete), and if there wasn't, I was planning on writing a detailed explanation on those first installation steps.  that is all.  well, i hope that makes sense. hehe

Yet, our best offer is http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=2144 beneath the initial installation documentation.

I have forwarded your point to "Wiki" topic:

For "walkthrough" docs and other links, check in FAQ & LP topic:

Re: installation walkthrough? [wiki]

Thanks to Wiki team, the walkthrough doc is now in Arch Linux Wiki including with screenshots. Some editing will still take place but ready to use.
