I have just built patched RPM's to solve two well known problems with
the XFS 1.0 and 1.0.1 installer.

Fixed initrd for those who are running softRAID with devfs enabled. The
raidautorun was not successful with the initial ramdisk created whith
devfs enabled.

Incorporates the patch to enable creation of overformated bootdisks with
something like mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0u1722 XXX.

Would be nice if somebody could integrate this into the installer and
build new iso's so we could resync.

Oh yes, here it is [http://home.datacomm.ch/~simix/XFS/]
