I fully understand (similar generation?!).

Alright. Then as far as installation of the modules are concerned,
there does not seem to be a problem.  So, just for a confirmation,
'modprobe ntfs' and 'modprobe fuse' run without any errors and lsmod
shows both modules loaded?

If ntfs-3g is working for you, I would expect the ntfs module from
kmod-ntfs works, too.  However, they are not the same.  The latter was
built from the ntfs code in CentOS 5.3 (which was originally broken).
I believe it worked after a patch was applied and this was tested by
CentOS QA members.
