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.

The old URL's as contained in the FC5 repo files is not valid anymore. The FC5 repository data still exists on the net, but you will have to change the yum repo files to pint to the correct valid URL's. RedHat still offers the old packages for all Fedora versions on their sites somewhere.
