Harmonization of installation titles

Nothing urgent, but we have several specific installation articles, I was thinking we could improve the consistency of their titles (i.e. choose a column below):

Install Install Arch Linux Installing Installing Arch Linux Installation
Install from existing Linux Install Arch Linux from existing Linux Installing from existing Linux Installing Arch Linux from existing Linux Installation from existing Linux
Install from SSH Install Arch Linux from SSH Installing from SSH Installing Arch Linux from SSH Installation from SSH
Install on a USB key Install Arch Linux on a USB key Installing on a USB key Installing Arch Linux on a USB key Installation on a USB key
Install on ZFS Install Arch Linux on ZFS Installing on ZFS Installing Arch Linux on ZFS Installation on ZFS
Install with Fake RAID Install Arch Linux with Fake RAID Installing with Fake RAID Installing Arch Linux with Fake RAID Installation with Fake RAID

Renaming Installation guide is of course not a choice, so maybe we could use the "Installation" column.

There's also VMware/Installing Arch as a guest, and VirtualBox#Installation steps for Arch Linux guests and LVM#Installing Arch Linux on LVM could be split out as well (Talk:LVM#Move Installing Arch Linux on LVM to a separate page).

I prefer "Install Arch Linux" or "Install".
I don't think the VirtualBox section should be slit out, the article is not that long and the current page structure is good enough.
Additionally, if we're renaming "Installing Arch Linux on a USB key", I think the move template of that page should be addressed.

On a second thought, omitting "Arch Linux" may induce some people to think that "installation" refers to packages or other piece of software. I'd be fine with "Install Arch Linux" too (second column).
About VirtualBox#Installation steps for Arch Linux guests, it was just an idea, but indeed it was better to flag it with Move first, which I've just done.
The Move template in Installing Arch Linux on a USB key now links to this discussion, I think it could make sense, although the article may need to be reworded here and there to refer more generically to removable media.
