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.
