make bootdisk

Hi , I 'm a current slacker user (pretty in love with this distro) but I heard about the great package manager called Pacman so I would like to try Archlinux.
My question: is there any way to create a bootdisk in order to boot Archlinux?. I had catastrophic experiences installing Grub/Lilo in the MBR so I prefer to use bootdisks (It's quite easy to make one under slackware).

Thanks in advance

Honestly never tried, I just searched the wiki and Arch forums anddidn't find anything either, someone asked and people just said to boot from the CD and install a bootloader Maybe it's something you could look at doing and giving back to the community
