If you want to eliminate the startup messages, the easiest thing to do is to disable SELinux.
SELinux as implemented by RedHat targets server functions (e.g., apache). So if you are just running a desktop, it isnít doing much anyway (sendmail maybe?). And if you are running a server, all it tends to do is to make troubleshooting a problem extremely difficult. Usually, it IS the problem.
You can disable SELinux in the system security setup (i.e., the basic firewall setup config).
If you really want to know more about SELinux, you can read the RHEL4 SELinux manual ( http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...selinux-guide/
), or at least read it until your head explodes.
