Have btrfs installed and running

I went ahead and reinstalled wont with FC14 – I probably could have done a:

[root@wont ~]# yum install btrfs-progs
[root@wont ~]# modprobe btrfs
[root@wont ~]# mkfs.btrfs -L VMstordev /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd
[root@wont ~]# mount /dev/sdb /kanigix

The hardest thing was getting the /etc/fstab correct because of the need to probe for devices after boot time:

/dev/sdb /kanigix btrfs defaults,device=/dev/sdb,device=/dev/sdc,device=/dev/sdd 0 1
