How to set up fuse to access an external HDD?

I would like to set up Redhat enterprise 5 to access an external HDD through use but the HDD is NTFS format because my linux system is dual boot with windows xp.

I have already tried to install packages of fuse and fuse-ntfs-3g by daunloading from the following web page.

I could have installed 2 of 3 packages but I could not have installed "fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-274.3.1.el5xen-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm" package because my linux kernel version is different from the package.

So linux show an error message of the package request vmlinuz-2.6.18-274.3.1.

By the way, my kernel version is 2.6.18-92.

Please let me know how I can resolve this error and how I can access the NTFS HDD from linux system.

Thank you

You should be able to just:
yum install fuse ntfs-3g
