I asked "Is the ntfs module loaded?"

Open an x terminal
command

su -
give root's password, then command
lsmod

Search through that list and see if the NTFS module has been loaded.

I had a similar problem with Red Hat 9.
My problem was I was running RH with multiprocessor support and had downloaded the singleprocessor version of the NTFS package. Once I had the correct package the problem was solved.

So, you might want to doublecheck which Fedora kernel you are running as well as the architecture of your machine. I e i386, i586, i686 or Athlon.
You will find information on how to check this if you follow the two links supplied by fancypiper in his first reply to this thread.

Lightbulb I feel your pain!

I understand what you are going through.....
To get the lsmod command to work try this command /sbin/lsmod
and then you will see if the mod is loaded..
