	I must be missing something. The last few times I've done a 
Fedora install, anaconda has given me three SELinux choices -- enforcing, 
permissive, and disabled -- with a strongly worded recommendation against 
the last. I've always chosen permissive, partly because I know I'm 
nowhere near being able to cope with enforcing, and mainly because I have 
no idea what I'd be up against with disabled. 

	But I'm already planning to insist on disabled with F8 -- barring 
any nasty surprises on my present #3 machine, where it's disabled now.

	So how much difference *is* there between disabled and not 
installed?
