If you have some basic experience with the linux command line, you
don't actually have to run the command in a linux terminal.
If you have no clue about it (yet), you might want to do some reading
and get familiar with the linux shell basics before installing / using
Archlinux, this might save you lots of trouble.

If you already prepared your installation media (which you're going to
do anyway) it's a matter of... 2 minutes?
