I installed the kernel and other updates from RPM on my Athlon Red Hat
7.0 system:

  Linux malachite 2.4.0-SGI_XFS_PR #1 Fri Jan 12 00:05:18 CST 2001 i686 unknown

It boots OK, except something seems to blow /dev/mouse away during the
boot.

I hooked up a drive with an XFS filesystem created on an IRIX
system. This is just a test; the FS contains junk files.

During the boot, the kernel reports:

  Detected scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 1, lun 0
  SCSI device sda: 91923356 512-byte hdwr sectors (47065 MB)
  Partition check:
   /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0: unknown partition table

But fdisk sees the partition table OK:

  Disk /dev/sda (SGI disk label): 28 heads, 328 sectors, 10009 cylinders
  Units = cylinders of 9184 * 512 bytes
  
  ----- partitions -----
     Device  Info      Start       End   Sectors  Id  System
  /dev/sda8               1     10009  91919260   a  SGI xfs
  /dev/sda9               0         0      4096   0  SGI volhdr
  /dev/sda11              0     10009  91923356   6  SGI volume

And the only device file associated with the disk is /dev/sda--no
sda8, sda9, or sda11.

I tried mounting /dev/sda, and got:

  # mount -t xfs /dev/sda /mnt
  mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,
         or too many mounted file systems

Anyone have any ideas? I'm a linux-xfs newbie, but I'm familar with
XFS and Linux.
