hi
i'm trying to use grub with xfs. i know that xfs does not allow to 
install any bootloader to the partition's boot record, so i've installed 
grub to mbr with grub-install. the intersting is that when grub-install 
tries to detect bios devices the started grub command hangs up. if i 
kill that grub process from an another shell, then grub is installed fine

i've found two interesting link:

http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/faq.html#grubwork

http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-grub/2003-11/msg00085.html

currently if you choose xfs as root fs then the setup will hang up when 
installing grub, wich is obviously not a too good thing

the question is what can we do? :)

udv / greetings,
VMiklos
