NTFS-3G/MacFUSE are kind of flakey - I dumped it pretty early on.

It costs a few bucks but Paragon NTFS is easy to install and reliable. With NTFS-3G, I'd be worried about the integrity of my data when and if I managed to get it working.

+1 on Paragon.

However, the only way I use now that worked flawlessly for me on both Snow Leopard and now Lion is this:

10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support - Mac OS X Hints

As I said above, it worked/works flawlessly for me, but hopefully it'll work for you too. If not, just buy Paragon.
