Finally for the network: 

gateway="default gw"

We choose for default gateway our DSL router’s IP address. E.g.
Be careful to delete the exclamation mark in front of the gateway word.
The last thing we must look now are the daemons. 

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng network netfs @crond)

For this time we don’t make a change here. We will make all the needed changes later. Arch is very good and powerful and this part as well!

Here you will find an alphabetical list of all locales, commented with #.
Uncomment the ones you need.

en_US	ISO-8859-1

And (if you are from Greece, in a different case find your country’s locales):

If you want to have the euro symbol add a line like this one:

el_GR@euro	ISO-8859-7

You mustn’t use the above IP addresses. Use your ISP’s addresses.

Save and exit nano.

We are finished and we press DONE.
