Paul Wayper gave a couple of talks on SELinux at this weeks' SLUG meeting, and includes links to a couple of very useful slide decks:

The sysadmin slides look particularly useful, as they focus on solving common issues such as running FTP/SAMBA/Apache servers, and provide some very useful general tips, such as looking in the audit log and using policy booleans for high-level policy tweaking.
