As long as the ntfs module is there and not uninstalled, it should be alright.

When you install the NTFS module (or technically any module) it is usually linked to the current kernel you installed it with. So when you install a new kernel ANY modules installed for the previous kernel will have no effect.

You need to update every module when installing a new kernel.

On the same note, when booting into a previous kernel, all modules that were installed for it will not be affected (or should not be affected) by modules from other/newer kernels.

Yes, modules are linked to kernels.

Some other applications, usually hardware related, may need some support in kernels (ex: Video4Linux or FrameBuffer support).

If you run 'depmod' on a module it should show you info on it.

The http://rpm.livna.org (sometimes called fedora extras non-US) provides kernel module packages for NTFS support and updates these when new kernel updates for Fedora Core come out. Makes it possible to simply stay up-to-date with e.g. yum.
