I complied the kernel yesterday to access NTFS file system from WIN2000.

I faced similar error msg.

What I did is as follows.

make clean
make mrproper
make menuconfig
make dep
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

and other copy image and lilo stuff.

It worked fine for me. and I could get access to NTFS partition from WIN2000.
