Can you try the following?

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh epel-release-5*.rpm
yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g -y

Take a look at the output from the command cat /proc/filesystems. Confirm you can see
        fuseblk
nodev   fuse
nodev   fusectl

Open in new window

If not, check the output from lsmod to be sure you can see the entry for fuse. If that's not there, as root try modprobe fuse. If that succeeds, try everything else again - but you'll need to do something more permanent for the future.

everything checks out running the commands fuse shows up everywhere in the commands.
the reference to modprobe fuse will do what?

modprobe fuse will cause fuse to show in the output from lsmod. If it is already shows there, the Linux Kernel Module (LKM) of that name is already loaded and modprobe will do nothing.
If the fuse LKM was already loaded, your problem must lie elsewhere. Verify that the following programs are installed
07:29:07$ locate ntfs-3g|grep bin
/bin/ntfs-3g
/bin/ntfs-3g.probe
/bin/ntfs-3g.secaudit
/bin/ntfs-3g.usermap
/bin/lowntfs-3g
/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g
/sbin/mount.lowntfs-3g
07:44:36$
