NTFS rw, Kernel 2.4.* patch

Hellow, i have a problem with writing to ntfs partition on 2.4.31 kernel. I compiled this kernel with ntfs write support, but when linux booting up and mouting ntfs partitions with rw mode, hi says that ntfs partition's version is win2k+ ant sets back to ro mode. Now i using kernel and there is everything ok, but some programs cant run, so i want go back to 2.4.31 or 2.4.32(new), but there is old ntfs driver version, so i found new version ant whant to patch it to 2.4.32 kernel. So, there is no new wersion for 2.4.32, so how to patch 2.4.32 kernel with that(linux-2.4.26-ntfs-2.1.6b.patch) patch? I tried patch -p1 < path/to/patchname, but it says:
root@nightsoul:~# cd /usr/src
root@nightsoul:/usr/src# patch -p1 < linux-2.4.26-ntfs-2.1.6b.patch
can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -Nur linux-2.4.26/arch/i386/defconfig linux-2.4.26-ntfs-2.1.6b/arch/i386/defconfig
|--- linux-2.4.26/arch/i386/defconfig 2004-04-14 15:05:25.000000000 +0200
|+++ linux-2.4.26-ntfs-2.1.6b/arch/i386/defconfig 2004-05-02 17:58:09.000000000 +0200
File to patch:

Try; patch -p0 < linux-2.4.26-ntfs-2.1.6b.patch

That's a zero replacing the 1 from your command.
