Yes - it is mounted on a new mount point you have created at /mnt/chris.

You can now go back to my long post and execute the rest of the steps, allowing for the name of the new mount point.

Let us know how it goes !

.. Don't forget the step to successfully unmount the USB drive with umount before removing it ....

@ Chrisroot

Here is the Gentoo Wiki for NTFS/FUSE installation and usage if needed.
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NTFS

I also have no comprehensive knowledge of gentoo. But many distros have standards of doing tthings even if we haven't used that distro.

BTW, since you have your FAT32 USB working and mounting. You can put an entry for it in your /etc/fstab and thus can easily mount and umount it.

mount /mnt/chris to mount it

umount /mnt/chris
to umount it


Do a man fstab or a google search on fstab to acquaint on some filesystem options when mounting filesystems like defaults, noauto,user,owner,nofail, etc...

-cheers

I'm glad to see that this finally got you where you needed to be. My life learning lesson is that for something new and complex or seemingly complex at first for me, I write it down so as to remember the critical points and steps for it.

I don't feel all disk mount cases will always be this difficult either. For instance a typical Linux desktop will auto-mount. And I think someone cited that you can install that and set it up for Gentoo. However on the other end, the umount has always been important.
