If you have installed Arch to an ext2 filesystem, it is a good idea to enable the journal and turn it into an ext3 filesystem. Journalling provides a range of benefits.
 
 
 
All you need is the command: 
 
tune2fs -j DRIVE
 
Where DRIVE is /dev/discs/disc0/part1 or /dev/hda1 for example.
 
 
 
Note that once you have done that '''you then need to edit'''
 
/etc/fstab
 
accordingly and change
 
ext2
 
to
 
ext3
 
for the partition's filesystem.
