I have a same error.
I think it's happen after last update.
Yesterday I can mount my USB harddrive with NTFS.
Today about 4 hours ago I update my RedHat, it was a many updates.
After that I can't connect USB Harddrive.
I got the same prob. and solved it by: yum install *ntfs*
the main packages to be installed are:
Package Arch Version Repository Size
findntfs x86_64 1.3-1.el5.rf rpmforge 6.0 k
fuse-ntfs-3g x86_64 2010.10.2-1.el5.rf rpmforge 613 k
fuse-ntfs-3g-devel x86_64 2010.10.2-1.el5.rf rpmforge 70 k
gnome-vfs2-ntfs x86_64 1.13.1-1.el5.rf rpmforge 5.2 k
ps. All packages are mandatory to make sure that everything is going well.
