Description of problem:
The dialogs for configuring Security Enhanced Linux during text
install talk about "Warn on violation" and "Active", and do not
mention the technical terms "Targeted" and "permissive". How does the
user know what is the correspondence?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot: linux text from CD-ROM FC3-0903.0-i386-disc1-ftp
2. Proceed to configuration dialog for Security Enhanced Linux.
Actual Results: Choices are "Warn on violation" and "Active", with no
mention of the terms Strict, Targeted, or Permissive.
Expected Results: The correspondence between the terms in the dialog
and the terms in /etc/selinux/config should be given.
is the version in FC3-re0903.0-i386-disc3-rtp.iso/Fedora/RPMS .
I've synced the text up here with what's present in a graphical
install so that it's a little bit clearer.
