Tried that too. Didn't work.

One thing I probably should have mentioned that MIGHT make a  
difference is that when I was reinstalling, I did not set up the old  
"home" partition, rather I just went in after the fact and edited  
/etc/fstab to point to the old "home" partition for "/home" and  
changed permissions.
I'm getting ready to scrap that install and start over with a fresh  
install, getting rid of all my old PATA drives at the same time.  
Hopefully this time when I specify that I want that partition as my  
"/home" directory, it will adjust permissions accordingly and I can  
safely disable SELINUX.

I will post back with the results once I get done re-reinstalling. :D
