I unmounted and mounte like:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda5 /media/EXTERNAL

end with this message:

WARNING: Old FUSE kernel module detected. This means, some driver features
are not available (swap file on NTFS, boot from NTFS by LILO),
and unmount is not safe unless you make sure the ntfs-3g process
naturally terminates after calling 'umount'. The safe FUSE kernel
driver is included in the official Linux kernels since version
2.6.20-rc1, or in the FUSE 2.6 software package. Please see the
next page for more help:

it works.

Should I take this message seriously?

thank to all for help

There's your answer -- "fs=ntfs". That means it's a Windows file system and
can only be written to from Windows. Linux can only read it. If you need
to be able to write to this device from Linux, you'll need to re-format the
drive to a Linux type of file system (EXT3, Reiser, etc.).

or to install the packages "fuse" and "ntfs-3G" and you'll be able to write to a
ntfs partition. I use that for months without error.
