http://people.redhat.com/kwade/fedora-docs/selinux-faq-en/ says:
Q:. I installed Fedora Core on a system with an existing /home
partition, and now I can't log in.

A:. Your /home partition is not labeled correctly. You can fix this by
labeling /home correctly:

/usr/sbin/setfiles /etc/security/selinux/file_contexts /home

You will need to have the policy-sources package installed to use
setfiles. Alternately, you can use the fixfiles utility to relabel /home
without having to install policy-sources.
