Has anyone tried a kickstart installation when trying to install
an XFS enabled system?

On http://linux-xfs.sgi.com/projects/xfs/1.0_installer.html
you can read:

Kickstart installations have been extended to include file system type. 
Add "--fs xfs" or "--fs ext2" the "part" command to seleect file system type.

So I've tried with my kickstart configuration which works fine with RH 7.1:

"part / --size 800 --fs xfs" 

but this does not work if I start up with SGI installer CD. It also does not
work if I omit --fs xfs.

I get this error:

"No valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems".

Any ideas?
