	Aha! I knew there had to be some sort of such file somewhere. 
Many thanks! I changed 'permissive' to 'disabled' on my #3 machine, and 
am betting I'll never notice a difference. If so, I'll move up in time to 
#2, and then to #1.

	Well, that's some improvement; I had been breaking my teeth & 
fingernails against the latest I had found, which was for FC5 -- knowing 
it was likely out of date ...

	The GUI at System > Admin > SELinux Management reminds me of the 
early CD-burning software : great for Alpha Plus Technoids, no doubt, but 
hopelessly opaque to ordinary users. 

	(After nearly ten years' use, I can still barely claim to be not 
quite clueless. My life won't last long enough to work my way through all 
the undifferentiated detail in such places, even if I did nothing else 
for the rest of it.)

	The various sound and media apps have come great lengths in 
recent years, by first choosing practical defaults, and then regimenting 
detail according to relative importance. Here's hoping the security gurux 
do equally well!
