On the **archlinux-2011.08.19-core-dual.iso** gptfdisk is
not installed and using parted for gpt partioning is
cumbersome and the wiki pages refer sgdisk on the syslinux

In general it seems gdisk and sgdisk are way more mature for handling gpt
disks and should thus be installed, if not even preferred over parted.
This task depends upon
