    Hi and Welcome !

    is there any particular reason for using that kernel version? you should install Latest version, Fedora 7. it support NTFS read/write access out of box.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Get the kernel headers, a compiler, a lot of patience and compile fuse and ntfs-3g from source. Read the sticky on the Newbie section for detailed instructions on building from source

    The problem is that it will be very hard to find an RPM for your kernel because they're discontinued now and if you find an old one it may have bugs or less features than newer versions. That's why I recommended building from source
