I had to reinstall the build system. So I used SGI's XFS installer along with RH 7.2's disc #1,#2. So Yes I do have the full XFS stuff. As far as coping the XFS CD-ROM files last how can you make sure this happens? I looked at the Rev number on the XFS files and they are newer. So if I were to assume that the system is smart to use the latest file would I be right? Is it also possible that I got by chance a ISO file when I downloaded it from SGI?

This is off topic, but, is there a doc on how to make the same type of BOOT CD that SGI uses?

Obvious questions first... are you using the xfs installer?

Are you sure?  If you're using a network install source, make sure you
copy the XFS CDROM files last, overwriting any Red Hat files.
