I've used a virtualbox for the screenshots, but i did exactly the same thing on my desktop PC.

You should add this link to the Beginners Guide in the Wiki.

I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings, but what is the purpose of a screen #9, #10, #11 etc.? OK, I can see your choices (highlighted options), but *why* do you pick that option and not the other one?
I've made these screenshots for my own personal installation.
I thought perhaps someone could find them useful and thats why i posted here.
I am using net install (ftp iso), so screenshots from 9 to 20 shows how to configure your network via dhcp and select the mirror for your installation.
When i was looking for a visual walk through of the installation for archlinux, i found some guides but always were short of steps or screens,
so thats why i published this guide. It isn't an official or a super generic guide, just my personal net install of archlinux.
And if anyone else could use it, thats fine with me - my 2 cents to community.

I also found a lack of guides with visuals, so I came up with this guide. I didn't install through virtualbox, so I don't have a decent screenshot of GRUB from the archiso, which is your very first screenshot. I had to take a picture of the screen, and it didn't turn out very well. May I have permission to use that screenshot to replace the crappy one I have?
