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

mkinitrd-3.0.10-1XFS.i386.rpm:
Fixed initrd for those who are running softRAID with devfs enabled. The
raidautorun was not successful with the initial ramdisk created whith
devfs enabled.

mkbootdisk-1.4.2-1XFS.i386.rpm:
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/]
