Then that should be SCREAMED from the first line of this guide.

SELinux is a fundamental Security attribute of Fedora, and you guide is
the Fedora/Linux Secutity Guide.  But your document treats it like it is
an afterthought.

If I pick up a Fedora/Linux Security Guied and do not see SELinux right
a way, I am very confused.

I had to search the guide for the work SELinux and it is mentioned

First mention of selinux is on Page 33, as a footnote.


Page 33:
.3  This access is still subject to the restrictions imposed by SELinux,
if it is enabled.

Next reference
Page 145:

15. restore default SELinux security contexts: /sbin/restorecon -v -R /home

Page 150:

? use security-enhancing software and tools, for example,
Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) for
  Mandatory Access Control (MAC), Netfilter iptables for packet
filtering (firewall), and the GNU
  Privacy Guard (GnuPG) for encrypting files.

Then Chapter 7 Under references you finally give information on SELinux,
but the guide you refer to is buried under several semi-useful links.

Fedora SELinux User Guide

So why not in your Introduction to Security section explain what this
guide will not cover?  SELinux and refer to the guides that do cover it
there.
