[newbie] setenforce 1 breaks ~user

I recently upgraded to FC3 +  Apache 2.0. from RH7.3 + Apache 1.3. Currently running ext3 filesystem.

/home/*/public_html/ files do not have SELinux extended attributes therefore I cannot change the security context on files. 

I cannot see www.domain/~user with # /usr/sbin/setenforce 1 it has to be /usr/sbin/setenforce 0

I know I can force file lelabelling to include extended attributes (forgotten the url with the helpful command just now) with a reboot, and then follow the '# chcon' directives at


# chcon -Rt httpd_sys_content_t /home/*/public_html/
# /usr/sbin/setenforce 1

Any web references or advice appreciated.
