Hopefully I am posting this in the right place.
I have the latest ISO (5/2007) and I am trying to get a system up and running with LUKS.
I have followed the guide in the arch wiki exactly to the letter multiple times now and I still can not complete my installation.
My problem is that after setting everything else up, Grub keeps failing on every install attempt with the following messages:
grub> root (hd0,2) Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x83 grub> setup (hd0) Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
Is there something I am overlooking or is the wiki missing a step some where?
Thank you for your assistance!

Following the HOWTO word by word is a bad idea, because last time I checked it sucked. You should rather understand what needs to be done, and then do it.
About your problem: The "root" keyword in grub points to your boot partition (the partition which contains your kernel), which obviously mustn't be encrypted.
