modprobe fuse
if that doesn't complain then installing is rather easy.

Your PackageManagement program should have some fuse* related items there, perhaps that should be tried first?

If not, here's the instructions for building 2.8.4 from source (as root):
cd /usr/src
tar zxf fuse-2.8.4.tar.gz
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/
   ldconfig && modprobe fuse
   pkg-config --modversion fuse
These instructions came from a fuse-enabled CentOS 5.7 host.

Have fun.
