ntfs no longer recognized after kernel update using YUM.

i updated my kernel using yum and my system doesnt seem to recognize ntfs anymore.
I originally setup the system to automatically mount 2 ntfs partitions (one drive and one partition) and this would give me access immediately to my media files on another drive.
After updating the kernel it seems that my Fedore Core 4 doesnt recognize NTFS anymore even it i try to run mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/windows manually, it tells me that it doesnt recognize ntfs.

I have tried using yum to update the kernel module but it doesnt seem to work.
i use the comand (same command i used originally), but get the following!!!!

[root@localhost ~]# yum install kernel-module-ntfs-$(uname -r)
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
Nothing to do

can anyone point me to the right direction???
also i used yumex to see if i could install this package, i found it i installed it but it didnt change, so i went beck into yumex after a reboot and removed the package, now when i update in yumex i dont see that package listed anymore !!???

That’s because kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 does not exist in livna (today: Feb 27, 2006). You can’t install something that doesn’t exist.

Boot using an older kernel for which you installed the ntfs module and you will be able to access the ntfs partition again.

These NTFS modules are compiled for certain kernels, changing the kernel means you require the NTFS module for that kernel too.

Bit of a pain with the frequency with which FC changes it's kernel.

Anywho, i get my NTFS modules from here, they are usually pretty quick to get the latest ones up.
