Base Package Installation Fails

I've heard great things about archlinux, and my ubuntu install was getting mucked up with all the alphas i was installing through means other than apt (lols! apt!).  So I decided to have a shot at installing it last night.  I grabbed the 2007.08.1 BASE iso, burnt it, yes i checked the md5sum.

Installation went fine up until I said "Install packages": it came back with the following:

error: 'acl': not found in sync db

Yes, acl is the first package on the list, and yes, unselecting it causes the same error with the next package on the list.
I made sure to say DONE and not cancel when partitioning & setting mountpoints, and i could write to /mnt fine from TTY2, so I don't have a clue what the problem is.  I tried FTP install, then found out about the repo change. hmm

Any ideas? TIA for any help.

Hi,
you could test the new isos. They are just RCs, but they should be usable.
You can find them here for both architectures: http://www.archlinux.org/~tpowa/rc-iso/

ise: Thanks, I'll try the release candidate FTP version.  I figure if I get base, I'll have to pacman -Syu and download the latest versions anyway.
