Slackware seems to be defaulting to ntfs driver instead of ntfs-3g


I have to swap around a lot of different NTFS-formatted external drives on my computer. It worked fine on my last computer but I recently upgraded to a new computer (and using -current instead of 13.37 this time) and now Slackware seems to use the ntfs driver rather than ntfs-3g by default for newly-inserted drives. How can I force it to use ntfs-3g as the default driver for all ntfs-formatted drives I might plug in? (without manually adding every single drive to my fstab of course).
