You don't have to edit the file, just add the parameters to the kernel
line through the GRUB interface.  SELinux isn't part of the equation
until after GRUB has handed off to the OS.

Booting from a rescue disc might have other advantages, though, if you
had further problems with your installation.

 important to the thread.)
