Are you planning on reinstalling, switching, or adding another
Use the new debian-installer CDs for Sarge. They have native XFS
This is a little trickier, especially if you want to do this in place.
I would recommend getting help with this from someone at your local
Linux User Group.
Adding another partition:
Upgrade your kernel to something past 2.4.25 (IIRC) and install
the xfsprogs package. Reboot to the new kernel and verify that xfs is
listed in /proc/filesystems. You might have to modprobe in the xfs
module. Now you can mkfs your new partition and mount it where ever
