I get it now, thank you for your patience!

As discussed previously I have now updated the wiki:
* Installation guide: 
https://wiki.parabola.nu/index.php?title=Installation_Guide&type=revision&diff=19048&oldid=18816
* OpenRC page: 
https://wiki.parabola.nu/index.php?title=OpenRC&type=revision&diff=19049&oldid=19035
Feedback is welcome!
