Yes, well, what users have to do in this case is load drivers disks
from floppy and then configure the NTFS filesystem.

I don't know.  File a wishlist bug against kernel-image-2.2.13 if you
feel strongly about it.

I personally think loading drivers from floppy first is not too bad a
workaround for the rare case of people installing materials off NTFS.
