None of the files you mention exist.

I'm currently running yum to get all of the updates.  I have to go out in
a little while, so it can do its thing while I am gone.

I will put it in permissive mode and reboot later today and see what happens.

BTW, when I bring up the firewall GUI and select the SElinux tab, it shows
disabled and everything is grey'd out, i.e., can't enable it.

I'll let you know how it works out.

Thanks for the tips.
