mkfs.xfs on Fedora 8?

I have a new Fedora 8 install with a 10TB raid array.  ext3 only supports filesystems up to 8tb.  So I need to format this using XFS.  I've read there is support for XFS in Fedora 8 but mkfs.xfs seems to be missing in my installation.  What do I need to do to be able to format and mount an XFS filesystem?

I don't believe XFS is 'officially supported' by the Fedora Project, so i am not sure if it (or the utilities to manage XFS) are installed by default. Have you checked to see if xfsprogs is installed?

xfsprogs doesn't appear to be installed.  This is my firs time looking into any file system over then ext3.  Can I install XFS support via yum and start using it or is there more to it?

Got it.  I installed xfsprogs via yum and was able to do a mkfs.xfs and a mount.  Thanks for your help!
