SELinux is not allowing mysql server to start


Hi,

I have Fedora 7 running on my home computer, with MySql database, which I use mainly for teaching myself.
My problem is that during boot the mysql server is not started.

My question is is there a way to allow mysql to start at boot time, and also have SELinux running on my system?

Strangely enough if I manually execute /etc/init.d/mysqld start
then the server comes up without complaining the least bit.

The /var/log/messages file says
