Thank you!
They need to edit the Archlinux beginners guide because it doesn't say use /mnt/boot only if you have seperate boot partition.

I would say it's pretty easy. If you get the netinstall, it's even easier because you have all the packages from the main repos to choose from (and there are a lot!). If you choose all the ones you want, you will be able to boot into a working desktop. Of course, the downloading part takes hours.

Once you have packages installed (the long part in my experience), configuration takes 5 minutes to an hour (depending on how deep you dig and how much you customize).

It's pretty much a netinstall the dual/arch iso is only 384M.
Yes, it is fairly easy to install now but I will say that if I hadn't have had experience with manually partitioning, it would have taken much longer to figured it out. Right now I'm at the stage of configuring the Desktop to boot instead of cli. On this install I chose LXDE instead of XFCE there definately are a lot of missing packages. I can say that arch isn't bloated unless you make it that way.
