This did the trick, thanks!

I removed selinux and updated to the new version of coreutils (which
is necessary even though I'm running a 2.4.x kernel -- is this
weird?), which fixed my policy problems, and now I have a policy
installed and loaded. Now I have a question about devfs: I use devfs +
devfsd, but I don't have devfs-se.so, nor do I know where to find
it. selinux-policy-default installs a conf file into devfs's conf
directory that requires it, though. Where do I get devfs-se.so? Do I
need it? Is using devfsd with SELinux silly?
thanks for all the help,
