Hi, and thanks for repy.

With "aif -p interactive" as per /arch/setup. the error ("ERROR:
ask_checklist..."), came right near the start.
With "aif -p automatic -c /myscript" the error ("...ask_checklist...", as
well as the "FATAL: Module aes-586 not found...") came near the start as
with the "Fatal Module...." error coming right after.
Sorry I couldn't be more detailed at this time.
I also tried this on 2 different PC's and still got the same errors.

I used "archlinux-2012.03.17_04-00-01-core-x86_64.iso"
I downloaded it and burnt it on a USB-stick with "dd if=...iso of=/dev/sdc.
I also tried it via CD/DVD.

Well,, I'll try the "latest" daily ones, one more time,
I basically just followed the readmes's for those.
I do NOT use the arcglinux-*-i686.iso" versions at all, so maybe this is a
problem with "x86_64", and the "dual's" ?

---> oh ok, well could this be an "x86_64" problem ?
