If you need to disable SELinux , simply edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux and
change SELINUX=enforcing (or permissive) to SELINUX=disabled . On older
kernel versions , you had to add a option during boot , but it has been
disabled.
Also , ACL is not related to SELinux. You can disable SELinux without
any fear of problems...
