# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#       enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#       permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#       disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

[john SLAVE1 ~]$ dmesg | grep selinux
SELinux: initialized (dev selinuxfs, type selinuxfs), uses genfs_contexts

Note that I have not rebooted yet, if that's necessary.
