I have just installed archlinux .5, but yet I don't understand how to get gnome up and running. I have mozilla working, but nothing else. Can anyone help?
pacman -Syu gnome
Actually... specifying 'u' means an upgrade and no matter what it doesn't read the rest of the arguments.
What you probably want is to get your system up to date 'pacman -Sy pacman', 'pacman -S coreutils', 'pacman -Syu'... then 'pacman -S gnome'.

I have started to get some gnome packages installed, but I don't know which ones to grab. Will updating pacman/coreutils and doing a system update make it so when I do "pacman -S gnome" it will install all the gnome packages? because currently "pacman -S gnome" does nothing.
I was also wondering how do I configure my system to run gnome when I go to initlevel 5?
yes, the pacman version you have does not support groups. When you update pacman, you'll be able to type pacman -S gnome and it'll download everything in gnome group for you.
