explane how?

I installed captive 1.1.5 at Suse 9.1
I have the needed files for windows emul. ntfs.sys, ntokernel.exe
Everything is installed correct.

I get this error:

linux:~ # mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/captive-name
Captive NTFS v1.1.5. Check a new version at:
Preparing LUFS kernel module... Run /usr/share/lufs/prepmod if problems occur.
lufs module not loaded: Try running /usr/share/lufs/prepmod to see more. at /usr/bin/captive-lufsd line 180
