+ 1 but a lot of his work relates to how to achieve things where as the
faq gives brief examples but not to detailed.

Keep it separate I think there should be a mention with a link from the
admin guide to the FAQ.

Upgrade the FAQ to a formal guide seems like the best way to go.

I checked all the links and rearranged the words.  I couldn't add much
of Walsh's stuff into it because it didn't seem to fit.  There was a lot
of use case scenario's in Walsh's posts and while thats great for a
guide in a simple FAQ it would not explain it sufficiently it seemed so
I didn't add it into there.

The details in the FAQ still seem to work. I don't modify selinux to
much since I don't understand the scripting of it, I left those bits
alone since I couldn't verify or change anything in the guides.



P.S. If we are writing it as a guide can we talk to Walsh to get some
ideas on use cases?
