Here is a nice installation tutorial for installing Arch that a buddy of mine wrote. This is meant to use along with the Beginner's Guide but is a very nice tutorial:

Quote

Arch Linux is one of the most tempting GnuLinux based operating systems. There are many reasons why one would want to use Arch Linux and since you are reading this post there are chances you have found a reason.

So let’s get to the point.
    Building your own house
    Arch is more or less like building your own house on your own land. You own it, but you are also responsible for building it from scratch. The obvious benefit of this approach is that you install only what you need keeping your system lean and fast. The flip side is that unlike Ubuntu, you can’t just move in – you have to build it first. The first stage of getting Arch is installing it – you can’t use it without installing it!

    And installation of Arch, though not that hard if you try, can be tricky.

    There is a very comprehensive Wiki on how to install Arch Linux. The Beginner’s Guide is an awesome resource, but there is so much information that it can be intimidating at times. If you are someone like me who wants to use Arch but is afraid of its official wiki, this article will help you. It’s more or less a documentation of the steps I took to install Arch on my systems.

    Before you follow this tutorial, I would suggest that you also open the Beginner’s Guide and compare the steps I mentioned in this article with those in the wiki. The goal of this article is to make you comfortable with the Arch Wiki. Use my tutorial to understand the official guide.....

    "Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

    I'm not sure that link is going where you want it to. It's redirecting to the main page of that site --> http://www.muktware.com/

    Anyway, here's a tinyURL that doesn't auto-redirect --> http://tinyurl.com/oo46m7t

    Ah... good ol' Arch. It's pretty tutorials like that that almost tempt me install it again... maybe even join the G+ Arch community.

    Nah. It was just a passing thought. ;)

    Excellent. I installed Arch this weekend for the first time, on two computers, with browser tabs opened to the Beginners' Guide and the Installation Guide. I would have had this tutorial opened on another tab! The notes I took during the installations are quite fresh in my mind so I enjoyed reading through this. Bookmarked for future reference!

    By the way, anyone know what's up over at archbang.org? Haven't been able to access that for about a week, I think.
