Description of problem:
The default kernel does not include support for read-only ntfs.

I know it's a small thing. Not everyone has ntfs partitions. And
someone who wants the module can go to the source code and compile the
module. Except it's quite a hassle to get the distribution kernel
source to compile a kernel module that will work, basically requires
junking the default kernel and going with a new one just because the
distributed kernel didn't have that option set to include ntfs support
as a module. Just set the option, don't even have to include the
module, just make it possible to compile the module as-is with the
source code provided.

Note: Yes of course I'm talking about read-only access. 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check /lib/modules/*/kernel/fs/ntfs*
2. Try to mount an ntfs partition

Actual Results:  System doesn't have ntfs support

Expected Results:  System should find ntfs module

65794 unrelated to NTFS. Support still lacking in Core 3 default (667)
kernel and 681_FC3 kernel.

Come on, just select "m" and include it in the default initrd with all
the other modules, and save thousands of people the hassle of getting
it working.
