I suspect that you won't have a problem with the targeted policy because 
the SGE daemon run in the unconfined_t (or initrd_t which is essentially 
the same) domain.  Currently we run FC5 with SELinux enabled on the 
clients without trouble.  SELinux is permissive on the server, but I 
don't see any sge related issues in the logs.

Wonder if anyone is working on a policy for SGE...
