I have the same problem. A little search got me to
http://forum.ntfs-3g.org/viewtopic.php?t=292 where a solution is posted. It
seems that using /etc/fstab to mount the NTFS partition at boot time is not
working since the mount command is being executed before the 'fuse' kernel
module is loaded. However, on my 6.2-RELEASE machine, I see the following
message when booting:

----------

/dev/ad0s2a: FILE SYSTEM CLEAN; SKIPPING CHECKS
/dev/ad0s2d: FILE SYSTEM CLEAN; SKIPPING CHECKS

----------

I'm assuming that this "late" mount (the last line above) is being done
after loading the 'fuse' kernel module, so the OS should be able to mount
the file system now, but it can't! It's looking for mount_ntfs-3g and that
file does not exist.
My /etc/fstab looks like this: /dev/ad0s1       /mnt/windows
ntfs-3g       rw       0       0
I also used the /etc/fstab entry suggested in NTFS-3G's own website (
http://www.ntfs-3g.org/ - scroll down to the end of the page), where
"defaults" is being used instead of "rw", but that gave me this error:

Any ideas as to what's going on here?

Thanks a lot
