XFS filesystem is cool. I now have my server running on it with quota
support. The best part is that I no longer need to run quotacheck on the
Someday I will have to try 2.6.x series kernel with XFS on that machine.
Thanks for the help offered at ILUGC, and thanks a lot for Suresh
ramasubramanian for giving me a tip that having NFSD as modules chould help.
Without that, I may have dropped that idea of XFS altogether.

i'd suggest, either set up a testbed (2.6 + xfs) or compile a 2.6 kernel
and boot into it at some low load time (say night time) for testing it.
i haven't used it in production yet - and most of the stats are from my
colleagues, i don't do any active sysadmining these days except on my
personal colo box (and that's freebsd).
