Nope, absolutely not.

The selinux-policies in Fedora 8 by no means fit into my network's usage
(nfs mounted homes, automount, networked printers, write access for
individual users to  /var/ftp/<....>), as well as I don't see that this
selinux-applet (sorry, don't recall its correct name) is useful.

After having played with Fedora 8/selinux policies for several months,
having fought with many false alarms, I came to the conclusion that
selinux is not ready for use in a network and switched it off.
