Perhaps it is the "fuse" issue. I am thinking the kernel that is with feisty is fine, whereas the one with Edgy is lacking the up to date item. I know there are fuse-utils... but I know nothign to very little about compiling things , I have about a 25% success rate of compiling programs that will run in general so I am not optimistic on that. I don't need to write to my NTFS on my laptop, so much as read it, so therefore the default ubuntu setup of fstab was probably sufficient. I'll leave the ntfs-3g there and will just avoid writing to it until I do further research.
