I Have Same Problem With RHEL 5

I am facing the same problem in RHEL 5 in mounting ntfs file system of installed xp. I have downloaded and installed the fuse-2.6.3-1.el5.rf.i386
and fuse-ntfs-3g-1.1004-1.el5.rf.i386 rpms from dag.wieers.com but when i run the mount command which is

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs

it is showing the error message

-----------------------------------------

FATAL: module fuse not found

fusermount: fuse device not found,try 'modprobe fuse 'first

unmounting /dev/sda6 (softwares)

-----------------------------------------

Now guys suggest me what to do??????

okay finally I checked to mount an NFS partition and it works, you need to install all the following packages to get it work.

fuse-ntfs-3g.rpm
libfuse.rpm
fuse.rpm
dkms.rpm
dkms-fuse.rpm

after installing all the packages you can mount your desired NTFS partition.

#mount -t ntfs-3g /path/to/your/partition /mountpoint
