File/Folder permission with ntfs-3g

I use the ntfs-3g driver to read/write to my NTFS partition. Everything works fine except I can't seem to set individual file or folder permissions even as root. Is this not possible with NTFS under Linux?

Also if it matters here is the fstab entry for this partition:
/dev/hda5	/home/replica/hda5	ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

It's not possible with the stable driver yet, only with the experimental security extension:

However you can use safely related mount time options already, like uid, gid, fmask, and dmask, to control who has access to the files and directories. Try 'man ntfs-3g' for details.
