So, today I was having problems getting the fuse-dfs to work with my cluster. I was an error compiling fuse for my kernel (2.6.18-92.1.17.el5). It seems that yum has stop providing this kernel, and it's headers (yum install kernel-headers wanted to install a newer version).

To solve this problem, I simply compiled with a older kernel-headers already installed on the machine (2.6.18-53.1.13.el5). To do this:
./configure --with-kernel=kernel-dir && make

The kernel module is in the directory kernel/. Modprobe will not work, instead use insmod.
cd kernel
insmod fuse.ko

This way is probably not the best way to do something like this, but it works.
