    Can't mount NTFS network share in Ubuntu 11.10...

    I'm having problems mounting a shared NTFS network directory (on a QNAP NAS) from a new Ubuntu 11.10 machine (3.0.0-12-server kernel).
    I have a 10.04 machine running on the same network, and I can mount the network drive fine from there.
    The 10.04 machine has the following packages & libraries installed to enable NTFS read/write support:
    Code:
    ntfs-config
    ntfs-3g
    libntfs10
    I can mount the network directory using the following command:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.1.100:/Qmultimedia /mnt/Qnap
    The 11.10 machine has the same packages installed:
    Code:
    ntfs-config
    ntfs-3g
    libntfs10
    I have enabled ntfs-config by creating a policy directory:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir -p /etc/hal/fdi/policy
    I have run the nfts-config tool:
    Code:
    sudo ntfs-config
    ... and enabled NTFS write support for external devices.

    When I try to mount the NTFS partition (which works fine on 10.04), I get the following error:
    Code:
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on 192.168.1.100:/Qmultimedia,
           missing codepage or helper program, or other error
           (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
           need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
           In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
           dmesg | tail  or so
    So, I still don't have NTFS support. Am I missing some other package or library to make this work on 11.10?
    Thanks in advance!

    *looks sheepish*
    Problem solved - the issue wasn't NTFS.
    As it's a network drive, I also need NFS support... doh.
    Fixed by installing nfs-common:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nfs-common
