Install From USB[SOLVED - in WIKI]

Is it possible to install Arch Linux from a USB instead of an CD.
I downloaded the 0.7.2 iso, but have not the tools to unpack the iso.
How do I do this.

I tried to copy a CD straight over to the USB, but that didn't work???

Hope someone have some answers

note : syslinux -> testing/mksyslinux

Tried again.
But when I do the mksyslinux i get following error:
mksyslinux -s /dev/sda
mksyslinux: usage
PREPARATION: Your device must have a bootable first partition in FAT16 format!
ATTENTION: The MBR of your DEVICE will be overwritten! You have been warned!

  -d=DEVICE        Your DEVICE first partition from /dev/xxx tree to install
  -c=CONFIG        Use CONFIG file. default: /etc/mksyslinux.conf
  -h               This message.

And I'm not able to just syslinux -s /dev/sda

Thanks
