Hello all!

I have a system with filesystems built with XFS 1.0.1.  I'd like to 
reinstall it using the latest XFS, but I'm wondering if XFS 1.3.1 will 
be able to read the filesystems created with 1.0.1?  Eventually, I'd 
like to recreate them, but I'd like to know if I need to move my data 
before I reinstall.  Thanks!!

P.S. Will XFS 1.3.1 work with RedHat 9?
