Fedora Core 4 -- NTFS RPM Problem

I just installed FC4 on an AMD64 system. I have a dual boot system, with XP, and another hard drive with mp3 on it, that is formatted as NTFS. It appears that FC4 doesn't come with NTFS support. When I do the mount command, I get this error:
[root@localhost etc]# mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /home/windows
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'

I downloaded the rpm from kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.11-1.1366_FC4-2.1.22-0.rr.6.0.x86_64.rpm
I install it by:
[root@localhost installers]# rpm -ivh kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.11-1.1366_FC4-2.1.22-0.rr.6.0.x86_64.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.11-1.1366_FC4-2.1.22-0.rr.6.0 is already installed

Then I try to load it:
[root@localhost installers]# modprobe ntfs
FATAL: Error inserting ntfs (/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko): Invalid module format

I am not sure what this FATAL error means and how to fix it. Any help?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
