In other words, just include ntfs-config in the dafault install?

It needs to be in anaconda. If anaconda runs ntfs-config or does it
it's own way I as a user don't care. To be clear I don't have any NTFS
partitions on my system but I saw this as a mayor showstopper for
users with windows partition trying this great new thing called fedora
linux.
Users new to linux and fedora install it and can't access their data
(on NTFS partitions). They don't know why it doesn't work and why is
their partition grayed out during the install. This should JustWork
out of the box. They don't know about ntfs-3g and ntfs-config and if
you tell them to open a "dos window" and type some commands to it they
will probably run away from fedora desktop screaming :)
