yes. provided your bios supports booting from usb devices. you will also have to use the USB core or USB ftp image from the download page.

Re: installing Archlinux from pendrive?

My laptop was unable to boot from usb pendrive, so I used grub to boot Archlinux from a pendrive. Just edit the grub boot line (with e key).
This requires some bootloader that can boot linux kernel (grub or lilo) already installed though.
Edit: I will add a step-by-step howto on wiki when reinstalling next month.
