    Eduard Bloch, maintainer of the bf2.4 kernel-image, has done some magic and cooked up XFS install disks and some Net install ISOs.You can get them here.

    The disks work wonderfully, XFS is available in the “initalize partition” menu, so no requirement to flip to the second console and fiddle with makefs.xfs.

    Rob: Great work Eduard!

    The site is unclear, do you need the SCSI preload floppy image if you use the ISO? Or is it only for the floppy install…

    I’m assuming you will need it because it’s the same kernel, but just wanted to mention it…

    I used this disk to install on a SCSI system.
    (I don’t even known which SCSI card/chipset is
    in it; it’s a weird “Frankenstein” box but the
    SCSI was auto-detected).

    Yes, if your SCSI controller is not supported, you will need to preload the modules from the floppy. We currently do not have a routine to preload modules from the CD-ROM.
