i get this error after follwing instructions on installing NTFS driver for FC5
i need to have FC5 Computer read shared folders over the network by winxp
Not surprising, since FC5 is ancient. The latest is FC11. First, I'd suggest upgrading...you're missing out on alot of security updates and patches, along with the latest software, ntfs-3g among them.
Second, if you need to mount a shared Windows drive under Linux, use smbclient, and just mount it. Shouldn't need ntfs-3g.
