selinux-policy-targeted-1.25.3-9 in FC4 surely isnt perfect. Cant create
dirs when I login over ftp:

type=CWD msg=audit(1123375603.524:11258814):  cwd="/home/iocc"

sgid=636 fsgid=636 comm="vsftpd" exe="/usr/sbin/vsftpd"

Cant find what I should turn off in /etc/selinux/targeted/booleans to make 
it work. So I need a little help. Later, I want to upload files in that dir 

Also, Im not so sure that I like that I cant see alot of dirs when Im 
logged in at the ftp.
