None of the available rpms (http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora2.html) worked for you?

For development kernels no, you have to rebuild the srpm or use Flatcap's 2.6 ntfs rpm build script. You can also directly build the kernel from the sources and config in the RPM, and then just copy the module out.. but when doing this you need to be careful you get all the config and version information right.

Wish me luck, btw where exactly does fedora usually put the source code? I seem to remember it not being in /usr/src .
One other question when you apply special drivers like a gfx card driver will that only affect that kernel, I know I had some really annoying problems updating the mesa drivers after a failed attempt to get 3d support working with my radeon 9000. I would like to try it again with a custom Kernel but I would like to be able to use any of the normal fc3t2 kernels and update as nessecary with no problems.
