[root at tomis ovid]# mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/windows/
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel

How do I load the ntfs module?  "modprobe ntfs" returns "Module ntfs not found."

I tried to install kernel-ntfs-2.6.5-1.358.i686.rpm from
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora2.html, but it says that while I have the correct
kernel, it's not running.  My version is actually 2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks (due to needing that with
an NVIDIA driver) and I think that's the problem.  NVIDIA has released drivers for 4K stacks, but
I've been afraid to install them lest I break something.  FC2 has a somewhat different
architecture than RH, so I've been leery of making too many changes.
