I have yet to purchase 9.1 here. We need XFS support for sure. Is there
any fix for this ? We have standardized our servers on Debian previously
but as the latest one had new Adaptec Raid, SuSE was the only distro
that would pick up the hardware and find the HD upon the install.

Kudo's to SuSE on the 9.0 Pro version for this. We are awaiting to hear
now on the XFS issue before moving up.
