Lot's of blog material out there.  Trying to get ext. USB disk to map in 
Windows virt image.  Here is where I am.

1) I found a link to someone who did get external USB disks working with 
FE.11 Virt the issues that prevent this from working by just adding the 
hardware through the virt manager are:
 a) need selinux-policy-target-3.6.12-62.fcc11.noarch or later
 b) selinux blocks access to this device and must be customized.

2) OK, this should take that long.  (or should it?)
   a)  went to add/remove software through Gnome and did not find any 
pending updates for selinux.
   b) after searching for another hour found how to command line Yum for 
selinux updates.  Here's what I got.

[root at BRSINC-VC01 qemu]# rpm -qa | grep selinux
[root at BRSINC-VC01 qemu]# yum -y upgrade selinux-policy-targeted

Setting up Upgrade Process
No Packages marked for Update

Based on this  I would assume there are no updates even though others 
claim there are.  Where is 62 and why does it not show up in the Gnome 
software update tool?
