ntfs-3g on macbook mounting problem


hello everybody,

i'm somewhat new to using linux and have been trying to install and mount my external ntfs drive on my macbook using ntfs-3g and macfuse and fink. I got through almost everything until the very end, with mounting the drive has given me problems. i try to type in the script that I got from an instruction guide, i keep running into the following "error" message?

c-67-173-163-174:~ dk$ ntfs-3g /dev/disk0s2 /Volumes/NewVolumes -o ping_diskarb,volname="NewVolume"
Error opening partition device: Resource busy
Failed to startup volume: Resource busy
Failed to mount '/dev/disk0s2': Resource busy
Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.
The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which
could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command.

I tried searching the forums but cannot seem to find a solution. If someone can help that would be great, thx.

dk
