There's a HOWTO here (Linux-XFS Howto) available in the Linux 
Documentation Project. Basically, you'll need to do some filesystem 
shuffling here (you can't do a painless conversion ala Ext2 -> Ext3)
as well as install an XFS-enabled kernel.

I'd suggest you grab the CVS version of the XFS-patched Linux kernel 
from oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs. You can build the XFS tools as well as 
the kernel from there.
