I'll guess that you're trying to install an older version of Redhat with
an SGI XFS installer.  I remember at one point Redhat updated the CDs
without changing the version and I think we respun the installer to
accept the new discs.

Regardless, you're probably trying to install an old version of XFS.  I
would recommend a more recent distro that supports XFS natively.  I know
the SuSE, Mandrake and Debian all support XFS.  I have used the Debian
sarge beta installers[1] with good success.
