SELinux problems


I'm quite new to Fedora - I'm used to Ubuntu, Arch, etc... As such I'm rather confused as to how SELinux works! I keep getting this error report:

Source Context:		system_u:system_r:ifconfig_t:s0Target
Context:		unconfined_u:object_r:usr_t:s0
Target Objects:		/opt/wicd/data/wicd.log [ file ]
Affected RPM Packages:  initscripts-8.60-1 [application]
Policy RPM:		selinux-policy-3.0.8-44.fc8Selinux 
Enabled:		rue
Policy Type:		targeted
MLS Enabled:		True
Enforcing Mode:		Permissive
Plugin Name:		plugins.catchall_file
Host Name:		ison.ltp.dalladay.com
Platform:		Linux ison.ltp.dalladay.com #1 SMP Tue Oct 30 13:55:12 EDT 2007 i686 athlon

Raw Audit Messages :

avc: denied { write } for comm=ifconfig dev=sda1 path=/opt/wicd/data/wicd.log pid=5349 scontext=system_u:system_r:ifconfig_t:s0 tclass=file tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:usr_t:s0
Running "restorecon -v /opt/wicd/data/wicd.log" doesn't do anything, nor does "setsebool -P allow_daemons_use_tty=1"

How would I go about sorting this out? The error report popups are driving me insane!
