Well, i can tell you that FC2 kernels supports xfs - however they don't
install any xfsprogs (mkfs.xfs, xfsdump, etc.) or acl stuff - and the
installer won't create XFS partitions - just ext2,ext3.
On my sorta-testing PFc2 box here, I've installed:

created a couple XFS filesystems and I've been building and burning DVD
ISOs from them.

That's a good question, and if I had my FC2 CDs with me I'd feed them to
the VMware gods and find out. Don't feel like blowing up a production
system today, though I imagine a RH7.3+XFS -> FC2 upgrade would be
interesting to watch (like say how a train wreck is interesting to
