captive Problem.. :(

So i downloaded captive because i needed access to my NTFS part to make some changes in the data, downloaded captive and installed it with not errors, then used the commands that are on the homepage to mount the NTFS part and got this error:

bash-2.05b# mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/drive-c
W32 filesystem .sys module not found: /var/lib/captive/ntfs.sys at /sbin/mount.captive-ntfs line 65.
You should run captive-install-acquire(1) of 'captive-install' package,
otherwise you can also acquire this file from URL:

So i assume i need W32Filesystem.sys, i searched google and came up with nothing to download, is there a other way around to get captive to work?

W32sytem.sys is not needed, only the 2 files ntfs.sys and ntokernel.exe
I could not find this files in my windows.
choose in captive-install-acquire for not scan and skip.
The you can choose to download servicepack 1a of windows, do this.
Captive-Program rips the needed files and put them in /var/lib/captive

Now you can mount windows drives with

mkdir /mnt/name
mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/name

I hope it works

My problem now is to get the lufs module loaded, I get this message:

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

Maybe somebody can me help with this
