This was not enough for my system (WinXP <--> FC4).  I also had to
modify the firewall settings (tab "Firewall Options" to the left of
SELinux tab) to make the local-net internet interface (eth0)
"trusted".  Otherwise I could get no TCP/IP service at all.  A ping
from WinXP didn't even work, and no "shares" were visible..  Since I
have a firewall in my DSL modem, I don't mind open TCP/IP on the local
192.168.*.* net.
