How could i do in the next step???

I've already installed the base system from cd image file.. And then configure some file as requested in the HOWTO.. I tried to pacman -Syn gnome / kde online.. but it's pretty slow that made me annoyed... Could i add some more sources in the pacman.conf for current or any other sources???? So how could i do it ??? just add the address in pacman.conf , is that okay ??? Or is there any way that could help improve the downloading speed??? Thanks in advance !!!

Re: How could i do in the next step???

there should be a list of mirrors in /etc/pacman.d/[current|extra]. The mirror at the top is picked by default.  If you move a faster mirror up, it will be faster. There's also a sortmirrors program, but it doesn't always work (sometimes wipes out the list!! sad) There's a script on the forum, do a search that does the same thing, apparently better.
