If I take your live cd 0.6 and do the install to hard drive will I be able to get back to a rolling release? I read that you must comment out the arm entry at the beginning of /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist to achieve this.  I'm not sure I understand the process "comment" can you be more specific what "comment" means?

Otherwise, I've been using CTKarch for a couple of months and find it very fascinating and easy to use....I may not fully understand all the working processes but I am trying.

Also, what yaourt command do I run to upgrade all installed packages?  What command do I run to remove a specific package such as Arora or Brasero for example?

Thank you Calimero!  Nice project indeed!  (C)

Removing packages

To remove a single package, leaving all of its dependencies installed:

# pacman -R package_name

To remove a package and it's dependencies which are not required by any other installed package:

# pacman -Rs package_name
Upgrading packages

pacman can update all packages on the system with just one command. This could take quite a while depending on how up-to-date the system is. This command can synchronize the repository databases and update the system's packages:

# pacman -Syu

Yaourt: Please read this: http://archlinux.fr/yaourt-en . It should help.

Yup.
As you could read it at the bottom of ctkarch.org/documentation/0.6

Get a root terminal using "su", modify the file with the command "nano /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist".

For the moment it looks like:
MIRRORLIST Code:
#
# Arch Linux repository mirrorlist
#
 
# Frozen repository using ARM
Server = http://arm.konnichi.com/2010/11/03/$repo/os/$arch

You must change it to:
MIRRORLIST Code:
#
# Arch Linux repository mirrorlist
#
 
# Frozen repository using ARM
#Server = http://arm.konnichi.com/2010/11/03/$repo/os/$arch


And dipilibudap answered the rest. ;)

Remember that when you use the rolling release repositories, you have to -Syu each time you want to install new software.
Otherwise you may install new software depending on new libraries, and it won't work as you have old libraries.

Thank you.....I'm learning it for an old but very nice IBM laptop I received. Most of the other "distros" are too heavy and this one seems to fit the bill nicely.  I'll read more of the archwiki and hopefully I won't have too many questions. :)
