== Installing Arch ==
=== Pre-Install ===
If you are receiving errors booting or during the install, try setting the SATA mode to "IDE" in the BIOS. This is not necessary for all users.
=== During the Installation ===
Be sure to install the necessary wireless driver (see above), "wireless_tools", and optionally "netcfg" if you would like wireless to work post-install.
