Also, in /etc/sysconfig/selinux, do I need to specify SELINUXTYPE=mcs ?

I assume I need to install the packages that are in ... especially those under mcs.

BTW, it would be nice if the src.rpm packages were available also (e.g., 
libsetrans) so that I could look at the code if I have any questions.

Also, I assume that polyinstantiation of /tmp and /home is not planned for MCS 
but intended only for MLS ... correct?  I assume this since you did not 
mention the use of "newrole" with respect to MCS.
