There is a set of disks for installing on XFS available at
http://www.digitaltux.com. The only complaint I have with those disks is
that the kernel is not up to date (nor is the version of XFS) and making
the filesystems XFS during the install requires that you jump through some
extra hoops. I hope to remedy that in the near future as well.
