Talking Problem in installing FUSE

hello friends

i need to access the NTFS drive from my RHEL 5 linux sys which is dual boot.
i installed XP as other OS

i installed NTFS-3g to mount the ntfs partitions
it installed well but when i tried to mount is i got an error

FATAL: Module fuse not found.
so i downloaded the fuse and kernel module from the same site

when i tried to install the fuse i came across the error.
config.status: include/config.h is unchanged
config.status: executing depfiles commands
config.status: executing libtool commands
=== configuring in kernel (/root/Desktop/fuse-2.7.4/kernel)
configure: running /bin/sh ./configure '--prefix=/usr/local'  --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking if FUSE is loaded as a module... no
checking if FUSE module is built into the kernel... no
checking if FUSE module is from official kernel... no
checking kernel source directory... Not found
configure: error:
        *** Please specify the location of the kernel source with
        *** the '--with-kernel=SRCDIR' option
configure: error: ./configure failed for kernel
i have the kernel module but i donno what to do with it..
i pointed the extracted source of kernel as the scr dir but i nothing helped

fuse has been part of the stock kernel for a good while
to the best of my knowledge; it should *just work*.

Try a 'find /lib/modules -name fuse.ko'
