As another poster indicated, you can do so when you have a wall receptacle
or another light controlled by a wall switch. I do not recommend this type
of installation for a ceiling fan. Those pull chain switches don't last as
long as the fan and you will most likely wind up replacing them down the
road. I suggest running a three wire to the ceiling fan and have a wall
switch for the light and a wall switch for the fan. As an alternative you
can get a fan with a remote control unit. I don't know what kind of life
you can expect from the remote control though.

Great replies, just one follow up question, what room are you doing
this in. I've been taught some rooms cannot use a switched receptacle
to meet a lighted outlet requirement.
