+If you want to use SELinux, chances are you will want
+to use the distro-provided policies, or install the
+latest reference policy release from
+ http://oss.tresys.com/projects/refpolicy
+However, if you want to install a dummy policy for
+testing, you can do using 'mdp' provided under
+scripts/selinux. Note that this requires the selinux
+userspace to be installed - in particular you will
+need checkpolicy to compile a kernel, and setfiles and
+fixfiles to label the filesystem.
+ 1. Compile the kernel with selinux enabled.
+ 2. Type 'make' to compile mdp.
+ 3. Make sure that you are not running with
+ SELinux enabled and a real policy. If
+ you are, reboot with selinux disabled
+ before continuing.
+ 4. Run install_policy.sh:
+ cd scripts/selinux
+ sh install_policy.sh
+Step 4 will create a new dummy policy valid for your
+kernel, with a single selinux user, role, and type.
+It will compile the policy, will set your SELINUXTYPE to
+dummy in /etc/selinux/config, install the compiled policy
+as 'dummy', and relabel your filesystem.
