The module fits only 1 specific kernel. If you build your own custom
kernel, then it only fits that kernel and not i.e. the Fedora shipped
kernel. Run a "locate ntfs.ko" and you will see that the module is only
in 1 kernel modules directory, the one for your custom kernel.

You may use the NTFS modules from


and you won't need to compile your own kernel to get NTFS support.
