Is this F10? If so, be aware that gdm on F10 doesn't allow root to log

No, it's F9, sorry for not mentioning it. I have solved this problem just
a couple minutes ago, when I wrote SELINUX=disabled in /etc/selinux/conf.

It turns out that it isn't enough, not on this system anyway, to add
"enforcing 0" to the kernel boot options.

Now I'm fighting with networking.

I was able to run yum install for all of Gnome, so I had networking
running perfectly. Now it stopped...That's another thread, however.

It seems to me that your real problems would be sooner solved if you identified why you can't run with SElinux active. That should not be needed, it isn't on any of my three F10 system, admittedly all test boxes, but working none the less.
