Eric, I'm running FC3 as k12ltsp v 4.2.0 and there is nothing in
the /var/log/messages file that approaches the boot error message that I
saw. It referred to some file problems within /etc but more than that I
couldn't see or remember, which is why I'm trying to track down where
that message has got to :-(

Looking more closely in my /var/log/messages it reports that is how
SELinux is starting:
Jun 19 21:49:56 local kernel: SELinux: Initializing.
Jun 19 21:49:56 local kernel: SELinux: Starting in permissive mode
Jun 19 21:49:56 local irqbalance: irqbalance startup succeeded
Jun 19 21:49:56 local kernel: selinux_register_security: Registering
secondary module capability
... however, the config file would have it otherwise:
[root at local ~]# gedit /etc/selinux/config
# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection.

... where the settings matched the config file that was set to
"enforce" and "targeted".
At a bit of a loss here :-\
