   Since F9 was released today I haven't had a chance to test our
Labeled-NFS patches with it yet. There were some complications with
getting it working with the 2.6.25 kernel that is shipped with Fedora
and one of my associates on the project with me was working on fixing
that. He is currently away on vacation so I have a few pending requests
for his patches for when he gets back. When he is back in town I'll get
a version of the patches that work with F9 and I'll send it off to you.

I had a blurb about the mount options but it seems that Eric beat me to
