Kernel(?) problem while installing NTFS support

I have been trying to install NTFS support on my Red Hat 8.0 box, and I got this error message:
[root@localhost /]# rpm -ihv /kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14.athlon.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
kernel = 2.4.18-14 is needed by kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14

I don't know why this is happening. I've done uname -r and it returned 2.4.18-14, so I don't have a clue what could be wrong.

I know this is probably irrelevant, but before I was forced to reformat and reinstall, I had it working fine - just so that you know that I had it working with my same hardware earlier.

I am greatly perplexed.. I think this is the first time I've gotten an error message that I didn't understand (Because I have that kernel.).

looks like you'll need to use the built in ntfs support mod. Assuming there is one in that kernel. It's just like recompiling the whole kernel only instead of doing the make bzImage, you just do make modules, and make modules_install in your kernel source directory, after you've chosen the NTFS modules with either make xconfig or any of various others. for detailed instructions, check redhat's user base, they have a nice article that explains kernel compiling.
