Side note: This thread is a great candidate for the user list.

You cannot remove SELinux completely from Fedora through yum. The best 
you can do is set it to Disabled and exclude selinux-* and libselinux 
from being upgraded. Note: Some packages may require newer SELinux 
packages and may fail to update if you exclude them.

I don't see you benefiting at all from disabling/excluding SELinux. 
You're best off saving your pennies for a faster computer.
