in addition to what the others wrote, I am doubting that installation of linux arch on vfat usb stick will work due to the lack of symlink support. 

But I might be wrong.

We are actually searching for a good filesystem that can be used on usbsticks on all unix and windows machines to replace the DVD with usb sticks.
