Les: Years ago (before CentOS 5?), I did have a FAT partition like
that. The current SW available for CentOS, for NTFS, has been doing a
great job for me. I don't recall having this problem, with previous
CentOS upgrades, and it was easy to cure. To clarify what I meant by
the reboot, after "modprobe fuse', I meant rebooting Linux, to get
fuse started. Wish I had a box with more RAM, so I could try VMware or
Virtualbox. That is something I want to try, but this box only has 512
MB of RAM. Lanny
