I just recently did an XFS install on my debian system. Since I
wanted to build XFS over LVM, zoran's boot disk was of limited use. I
did use it though! Some things I had to do:
1) the woody support script (find . -name woody after you boot from
the floppy on VC2) needed to have the groff-base package added.
2) I installed woody to a scratch HD installed as hda
3) I had two 40G drives attached as hde and hdg on a promise ATA100
4) Boot from hda, build a new kernel with latest XFS with lvm
5) get lvm tools from the unstable tree
6) Identically partition the dual 40s into three slices. 1 small
slice (50m) for boot, make it /dev/md0. 1 small slice (1G each) for
swap, make it /dev/md1. The "rest" as a large slice and make it
7) create a pv of /dev/md2, vgcreate on it, and then create lvs for
whatever I neeed.
8) (still have to do) build a working recover disk for XFS+LVM. For
now, I can just plug in my scratch disk and have a working debian with
XFS+LVM. It is more drastic than just putting a floppy in, but... it
tada! working system.
Now, getting Oracle9i to install on woody is even more fun. :)
