Okay, I found out what I was doing wrong. BootMagic pointed to the correct partition but there was nothing to 'take over' when it booted from that partion. I re-installed ArchLinux with grub and it works now.
now, why am I using boot loader?
a) I am shaky at using linux, if I screw up my linux installation and I use boot magic then my pc will still work - just without linux.
b) It is much harder to configure than BootMagic. I understand BootMagic allready so why try to learn another one when they both do a near identical job with identical performance.
