The boot time defaults are in the file /etc/sysconfig/selinux.
The current status is reported by the command "sestatus".
You can change it on the fly with the "setenforce" command.
See their manual pages for details ("man sestatus", "man setenforce").
Of course their manual pages do not mention each other :-(
