W: GPG error: http://www.backports.org etch-backports Release: The
following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not
available: NO_PUBKEY EA8E8B2116BA136C

the same thing happens (the pubkey error message) 
if I run apt-get update.

I haven't yet got a proper understanding of the GPG keys.

In view of Rick's advice, perhaps I'd better forget about trying to 
get ntfs-3g running under the current Debian Stable (2.6.18 kernel)

Changing the file system is another option for me to get the problem
