Edit /etc/selinux/conf and change permissive to disabled and reboot the server. This is the only way to make these changes to persist through reboots.

WHY do you need it disabled
SE is there for a very good reason and SEtroubleshooter is a very nice GUI for it .
I would leave it installed and learn how to use it .
This is for fedora 13 but most of it will work for RHEL 5.5
and for cent/rhel
