Kmod-ntfs problem

HI, I, like many others, have a problem with accessing ntfs drives, I've installed Kmod-ntfs and after that I'm stuck. What do I do?

(edit: I can't affort to lose the stuff on my Ntfs drive)
(edit 2: I've got FC5)

Mount the ntfs partition with the read-only option (ro), so, something like

mount -t ntfs -ro /dev/hd* /mnt/whatever

You probably want the NTFS drive to be mounted and accessible everytime you log in your system. If so, create a folder where you would like to mount the NTFS drive, for example /NTFS. Find the corresponding partition (/dev/hd**) Open then the /etc/fstab file with your favorite text editor and add a line similar to the following:

/dev/hd**        /NTFS        ntfs        auto,user,ro,umask=1000          1   0
Remember to replace the two asterisks with the appropriate letter of device and number of partition ("fdisk -l" will show what is where) and use the directory you just created, if not /NTFS.
