Thanks, Ralph -

yum  --enablerepo=centosplus install kmod-xfs-0.4-

worked (with .x86_64.rpm appended, it didn't).

I also did "yum  --enablerepo=centosplus install xfsprogs"
/sbin/mkfs.xfs /dev/md4
which is a RAID0, and am now happily testing XFS.

thanks to the CentOS developers for making it so easy to try things out!
