Problem with reinstalling NTFS module (FC3)


I updated to the new kernel on yum a day or two back (2.6.9-1.678_FC3), and the last time I opened up synaptic it told me that the NTFS package was I removed it and went to the website to look for an update..but found none. Now I try to reinstall the old one it rpm'ed
fine, but:

#/sbin/modprobe ntfs
FATAL: Module ntfs not found.

so I decided to reinstall it again just incase it was a freak screw up by rpm but it didnt work. and it told me it was already installed (duh)

I went through the linux-ntfs people's procedure on what to do when you get that error message but none of it worked and now im stuck without ntfs access which truly bites...any help would be greatly appreciated..Thanks
