Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Before this i used kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5. When i mount it, it works fine. I can access my ntfs partition and play mp3 files.
Just now I've just installed kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5-2.1.26-0.rr.10.5.i586.rpm
. I save the rpm under /home/jo directory. Before that I've also updated my FC5 using yum. When i tried to install the new kernel, it displayed:
[root@localhost jo]# rpm -i kernel-module*
package kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5-2.1.26-0.rr.10.5 is already installed
Then I type lsmod to find if there's any ntfs, it displayed:
This is not where kmod-ntfs is supposed to install. I just tried to install with yum as I just advised you to do and it worked like a charm. The module resides in /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2122_FC5/extra/ntfs
My guess is that modprobe is finding your old not working module in the path before the good one and using it. Did you remove your old package (rpm -e kernel-module-ntfs) ?
