I only encountered two odd issues during the installation of Arch using the 0.7 final ISO. One of them was that when I attempted to install grub to the root partition, the installer only gave me a list of existing partitions up to dev/hda9 as possible options. Although there were several more (including the arch root and home partitions), the list would not scroll down past that hda9 partition.
I submitted to the will of the installer, and instead edited the lilo.conf file by changing the boot directory to boot=/dev/discs/disc0/part12, which is where I would have installed grub if given the option. But lilo installed fine of course using this method and all is well.
I would have preferred grub, but lilo is fine and I am familiar with using it as a bootloader so in the end it's no big deal. I just wondered if this might be a bug in the installer ... or ... horror, an operator error.
That was a bug in the installer. Fixed for the next release.
Oh, okay! Thanks for the info.
