Thank you for update but Linux 7.3 means red hat 7 update 3 red hat 3
update 5.In our system we are unable to detect disk which is having
file system in XFS format. Our system is not able to support it.
2.4.21-32.EL is kenal version on our systems. Please let me know
which version should I use in redhat.I am trying this with fedora
RedHat 7.3 ( or even 8.0 and 9.0 for that matter) are really very old
and outdated. You'd be much better for pretty much everything with
something more up-to-date. Back then RedHat 7.x needed a special
additional CD provided by SGI for XFS support IIRC.
I'm pretty surprised that RHEL 3 doesn't support XFS though. Anyway,
RHEL 4 and 5 do without any doubt (I use XFS on them).
Another point could be that if you're used to and like RedHat Linux 7.3
and/or RedHat Enterprise Linux then I think looking at either the newer
RedHat Enterprise Linue (RHEL) 4 or 5 or Fedora is the way to go.
To use XFS in Fedora (http://www.fedoraproject.org) you need to add the
word "xfs" to the installer commandline and also make sure you use a
seperate, small (100MB is enough) partition that's called /boot that's
using ext3 (others work but I recommend using ext3 simply for that
