I have built the 3.2 kernel on my latest blfs (3.3 kernel previous) 
still no luck with ntfs,
I then copied the config-3.2 file from other blfs (working ntfs) still 
not able to mount ntfs file system.

The 1st time I tried to mount ntfs with the copied config file, it 
reported "will check /etc/filesystem  or /proc/filesystem".

    When I checked /proc on latest blfs it had files and folders in, all 
my other blfs builds /proc is empty??
    Should /proc be empty

If I install ntfs-3g do i build the kernel, dos etc as a module?
