    Im trying to use MacFUSE with my external HD which is NTFS but on the last step on this walkthrough i.e on the last step in the terminal where is says to mount NTFS volume...the terminal comes up with this:

    $LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0)
    Failed to mount '/dev/disk1s1': Operation not supported
    Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use. Choose one action:

    Choice 1: If you have Windows then disconnect the external devices by
    clicking on the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the Windows
    taskbar then shutdown Windows cleanly.

    Choice 2: If you don't have Windows then you can use the 'force' option for
    your own responsibility. For example type on the command line:

    mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/”Windows” -o force

    Or add the option to the relevant row in the /etc/fstab file:

    /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/”Windows” ntfs-3g force 0 0

    I have tried doing the steps it tells you to do but neither work, or rather i dont know how to do the second one with the "/etc/fstab file"

    I've also tried using the SSH gui but its asks for server and user name and i dont know what the server would be etc........

    Dont suppose anyone could help me out could they?

    Cheers me dears!
