[CentOS] CentOS 5.3 and NTFS

Aaaaaa, I'm pulling out my hair over here!

I have an external USB drive which I had at work, connected just fine
to my CentOS 5.3  box.  I recall there was some jiggery-pokery
involved, but do not recall just what.

So now I'm on my wife's freshly installed CentOS 5.3 laptop trying to
get it going, and I keep getting errors about

FATAL: Module fuse not found.

I saw this message from the May archives :

http://lists.rpmforge.net/pipermail/users/2009-May/002345.html

and this as well

http://www.johnson.homelinux.net/mywiki/NTFS

but no luck!

[root at localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep fuse
dkms-fuse-2.7.4-1.nodist.rf
fuse-ntfs-3g-2009.4.4-2.el5.rf
fuse-2.7.4-1.el5.rf

[root at localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep ntfs
ntfsprogs-1.13.1-6.el5
ntfsprogs-gnomevfs-1.13.1-6.el5
fuse-ntfs-3g-2009.4.4-2.el5.rf

[root at localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep dkms
dkms-2.0.20.4-1.el5.rf
dkms-fuse-2.7.4-1.nodist.rf

Can someone answer me this?  This "fuse module" ... the one that I'm
supposed to be able to add with "modprobe fuse".

What RPM provides it?  And what file should I be looking for to
confirm that it is there?

Oh, and just to show that the drive does show up at least :
[root at localhost ~]# fdisk -l
