I am in exactly that situation right now. I am migrating a whole
bunch of machines over to a selinux-capable system, but I turn
it off, mainly because I do not even remotely know enough about
how it works and how one uses it.

It sucks. Majorly.

Is there a decent book available on understanding and managing
selinux (covering what is available in RHEL4)? I am quite fond
of dead tree versions for learning about a topic, and printing
out PDFs is unsatisfying.
