I think that you have misunderstood my question.  I know how to do it
with the packages from RPMforge ( which is where I get fuse-ntfs-3g )
but I'm trying to evaluate the kmod-ntfs package from ELrepo.org.  There
seems to be something I'm not understanding about this approach, or I'm
not finding the correct documentation for it.
