NTFS support not working at all, cannot mount ntfs disks r or rw
disk worked fine in 0.683b

mount_ntfs is missing ? is this normal per ntfs-3g or a bug ?

    The device '/dev/ad2' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
    Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
    partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?

    While one of the new features touted in FreeNAS 0.684b was supposed to have been new NTFS support, from what I can tell from the compiled binaries being distributed, the NTFS support has been removed. The docs advertising that the old buggy read-only NTFS was replaced with new improved read-write NTFS-3g(?) version seems to be mistaken or was forgotten from the distributed build. Anyone want to try again or explain this?

    ntfs-3g can't mount NTFS volume with the 'dirty' flag on (need a windows checkdisk).
    The good use of ntfs-3g from the command line is:
    ntfs-3g /dev/ad2s1 /tmp/ntfs/
    => don't forget to add the slide (partition) number after the disk name.

    Can you please test the latest 'nightly build' (https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=151951&package_id=229704). The ntfs-3g driver has been updated in the 0.865b build.
