problem mounting ntfs partition on centos


guys, I just installed centos, and I have a 1 T storage drive in ntfs. But, apparently, centos does not support ntfs partitions out of the box, so I'm installing ntfs-3g following this guide, but when I try to find my kernel, I'm not getting much help from the output

Code:
uname -r
2.6.18-128.el5

I think I see where you're getting hung up. Looks like you have the normal kernel installed, so the normal kernel-devel is fine and you can go ahead with the instructions.

I did try to finish the instructions, but, when I get to mount the partition this is what I get...

Code:
#mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/storage
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root
# modprobe fuse
bash: modprobe: command not found
so I tried to reinstall fuse
Code:
#yum install fuse
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

Nothing to do

Try running /sbin/modprobe. Note that you will need root privileges for both that and the mount.
