Hi,

This is generally happen when your kernel is compiled with a wrong option Namely (CONFIG_4KSTACKS).

If you want to fix this you can either compile a new kernel with this options set to NO or you can grab a new kernel from Linux-NTFS site.

For a wiki for compiling a new kernel look at here:
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/Fedora

To grab (grab not grub :)) one look at here:
http://www.linux-ntfs.org/ there's a wiki here too.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
K.
