Did "yum install fuse-ntfs-3g" on CentOS 5.3 and it pulled in fuse as a 
dependency but attempting to mount an NTFS partition resulted in errors:

[root at hazardous ~]# emacs /etc/fstab
[root at hazardous ~]# mount /XP
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root
[root at hazardous ~]# modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.

Doing "yum install dkms-fuse" fixed the error, but shouldn't fuse pull 
in dkms-fuse as a dependency if it is necessary?  (dkms was already 
installed for other reasons.)
