Postgresql fails to start?

Hello list,

We have Fedora Core 4 Test 3 installed on a development box and just 
recently installed Postgresql 8.0.3. Sometimes, when starting 
postgresql with the /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql script, it gives me the 

/usr/bin/chcon: can't apply partial context to unlabeled file 

Sometimes it is followed by the OK message (postgresql started OK), and 
sometimes by the FAILED message. But either way, when you do a ps aux | 
grep postmaster it shows postmaster is running.

I googled and found that it is related to SELinux, but I already have 
it disabled and even passed selinux=0 to the kernel via grub.conf. Am I 
missing something? Sorry, but I'm very new to this SELinux stuff and 
was hoping will get help here from you gurus before asking the SELinux 

Thank you so much.
