No - not good form. Don't use kernel parameters where configuration
files in /etc tree accomplish the task much more elegantly and you can
use GUI tools.

# head -n 6 /etc/selinux/config
# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#       enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#       permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#       disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
SELINUX=permissive

edit per instructions (changed to disabled) or use
system-config-security and change it to disabled there (the result is
exactly the same)
