Back in the old Red Hat Linux and FC2-4 days when I had more time, I
seem to remember that Grub fully supported XFS.  I could make all the
filesystems XFS and I could boot just fine from them.  Nowadays, I have
less time, or I'm lazy, and just accept the Anaconda ext3 defaults for
the system partitions.  I still store all the important user data under
XFS, though.  I haven't lost a byte to XFS yet.

Can't comment on SELinux, don't use it :-) :-)

I agree with Dan.
