Major problems after upgrade from FC1



I am about to pull what little is left of my hair out.  I decided to
upgrade from FC1 to FC2 by pointing yum to a FC2 repository and upgrading
all packages.  This worked for the most part but I am having massive
problems with SELinux. I am not sure that SELinux got setup properly.  One
of this biggest problems that I have is that crond now no longer runs.  I
have been following the Fedora SELinux FAQ to get up to speed with lots of
google searches and watching this list but I have not been able to solve
my problem.  My first problem is that system crond is not running.  My
user crontab is running fine.  So, my question is could someone help me

1.) Make sure my setup is correct.
2.) Get the correct policies setup (I am also having a problem with
postfix, but I think if I get #1 then there is enough info on the web to
solve that problem).

Also, the reason I think there is a configuration problem was because when
following the FAQ to add a user:

Q: How can I create a new Linux user account with the user's home
directory having the proper context?

A: You can create your new user with the standard useradd command, but
first you must become root with a context of sysadm_r. This context switch
has been incorporated into the su command:

%>su - root
   Your default context is root:sysadm_r:sysadm_t.
   Do you want to choose a different one? [n] n
%>useradd auser
%>ls -Z /home
   drwxr-xr-x  auser     auser     root:object_r:user_home_dir_t         
/home/auser
------------------------------

So I thought if I ran ls -Z /home I would get a similar result?

------------------------------
OUTPUT: ls -Z /home

drwxr--r--+ <user>     <group>     (null)                           <user>

Also, I get the (null) report on all directories in /root.

------------------------------
OUTPUT: sudo /usr/sbin/sestatus -v
SELinux status:         enabled
SELinuxfs mount:        /selinux
Current mode:           permissive
Policy version:         17

Policy booleans:
user_ping               inactive

Process contexts:
Current context:        user_u:sysadm_r:sysadm_t
Init context:           system_u:system_r:kernel_t
