I manually edited /etc/selinux/config. I tried editing (separately)  
both lines that say "selinux=" but both coincidentally FUBARed. You  
could be correct about it being a coincidence. I'm moving my /home  
partition to a new drive and getting rid of the PATA drive that it was  
on. Once that is done, I will no longer have any PATA drives in the  
system and will reinstall again. Hopefully once I tell the installer  
to use the old /home partition as /home again, it will adjust  
permissions, etc.
