First of all I want to say that XFS is sooooooooo cool :-)
This is what I was really waiting for and I'm very happy
to see SGI doing it. SGI is great.
I found two problems with the XFS RedHat installer:
1) Boot floppy:
When doing a mkbootdisk 2.4.2-xxxxx I saw that the content couldn't
fit on the disk. Then I tried the following:
mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0u1722 2.4.2-xxxxx
The disk was created successfully but unfortunately it didn't boot
anyway. I guess it is a problem with the used 'syslinux'. Did
you try something like this ?
2) Software RAID does not work. At least when used for boot/root
volumes. After investigating the problem I found your note about
devfs beeing enabled and after using devfs=nomount as kernel parameter
it worked perfectly. Now my question is: Why did you enable devfs
and what problems my I run in when using devfs=nomount???
