Unhappy HAL fails to start at boot


Hi all,
I just installed FC4 64bit on my Compaq presario R4100. It has a 3500+ AMD 64 processor. After a lot of research I have gotten the wireless network adapter working, and the clock at normal speed. However, I am really struggling getting the HAL working. It fails at startup and when I run

'/usr/sbin/hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes' I get the following output.

"10:41:53.751 [I] hald.c:495: hal 0.5.2

For now disable selinux on booting by adding selinux=0 to the kernel line within your /boot/grub/grub.conf file. Then update the system, many fixes have been done since FC4 came out and this one applies to your problem;

You can also view a good tutorial on this subject at;

Unfortunately the second link gives me a '404 Not Found'
Could you either update the link or provide the full tutorial name?
Thanks in advance
