I'd like to completely agree with Joe. I'm beginning to have quite a lot
invested in httpd, PHP and related database code and I don't want
SELinux breaking what is there without a lot of warning. For new
installs of FC4, I've been forced to turn off SELinux support for these
applications. They simply don't work otherwise.
