I believe some of the SELinux replacement programs such as "login"
require PAM, so PAM would be a first step anyway.
Also, be warned that if you start experimenting with SELinux it will
probably attach extended attributes to any filesystems you mount
read-write, which may make them unmountable under mainline 2.4 kernels.

Russell Coker has been maintaining SELinux packages for Debian for a
few years:
The Hardened Gentoo folks have an SELinux package but I don't know how
far along it is:
There are probably some others.  It's been a while since I've followed
the SELinux mailing list so my information is a bit old.
BTW: if anyone happens to be the Maryland, USA area, I think the
Columbia Area LUG is hosting an SELinux presentation by Tresys
Technology on 10 November.
