Exactly. At the first prompt , type "linux xfs jfs reiserfs" to get the
option to use any of these three filesystems.. Jfs has a bug though..
The package was compiled with the -mcpu=686 option , which breaks
mkfs_jfs (already bugzilled). But you can install to a jfs partition if
you have one already formatted.
