	Here's an interesting discovery. On a machine where I haven't 
touched selinux since installing F7, I get this : 

[root localhost btth]# cat /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.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.

# SETLOCALDEFS= Check local definition changes
[root localhost btth]#

	Note that it says "targeted"  -- typically, without giving me any 
faintest hint at what. The same file on the machine I disabled selinux 
from yesterday is the same except for "disabled" instead of "permissive."

	I *hope* targeted makes no difference so long as selinux is 
disabled. But that doesn't tell me what is targeted on the other 
machines, nor whether the default choices fit my kind of situation. (If 
they do, I'll take it on faith that they're well chosen.)
