You can disable SELinux in Fedora 16 Verne (which is more of an annoyance for several user) by editing the config file in /etc/selinux while being root (either you can use text editor of your choice or by using vi as described below)

su
vi /etc/selinux/config

In vi to edit a file you first need to hit the “i” key. Now change the text SELINUX=enforcing to SELINUX=disabled like a regular text editor and save the file, to save the file in vi, first hit “Esc” and then type :wq at the command prompt (mind the : before wq, pressing Esc followed by : takes you to the command prompt) and press enter to return to terminal window. Now, restart the X-server by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Backspace or reboot and SELinux should be disabled.
