However for me MacFusion quits with an error "Failed to mount" and the log revealed:
(SSHServerFS, phy303.uni-regensburg.de, 29.06.11 19:27) /Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/Support/fusefs.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) link error; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).
This is a bug in the current MacFuse version (2.0.3).
The solution is to install the NTFS-3G Project's MacFuse binaries at tuxera.com
