arch linux install over pxe


is there a solution to install ARCH linux over pxe.
I have a laptop widthout cdrom and floppy. Only way to install a OS is throught net .
I tryd successfully fedora core II isntall. But fedora has own pxe boot stuff (kernel and root dir).


In which filesystem is initrd.img made ?
I want it to mount like so:
mount -t ext2 -o loop initrd.img bootdisk/

So I can add ethernet modules.
But I cant figure out in which filesystem initrd file is.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
