The dual netinstall ISO boots on x86_64, so not entirely untested!

Btw, with these ISOs, you can do this:
1) Copy the /arch folder from any of the ISOs to the root of any USB
drive (stick must be vfat, ext2/3/4 or btrfs)
2) Run 'extlinux -i $PATH_TO_USB/arch/boot/syslinux/'
3) Run 'sed 's|ARCH_201108|filesystemlabeloftheusb|' -i
4) Install MBR to the USB and mark the partition active

After these steps, you have a bootable USB without overwriting your
whole USB with dd. Just did that to my USB drive again, so I have an
up-to-date Arch system on it.
