Help me enable exFAT support

Okay, so I wanted to use my flashdrive (formatted exFAT) on my CR48 running Elementary OS (variation of Ubuntu). So I found a tutorial, great.

I start following the directions. And I find something that flies 100 meters above my head,

The driver uses the FUSE (filesystem in userspace) framework. For it to work, FUSE needs to be enabled in the kernel. If you use the stock Ubuntu kernels then this is the default, so you don't have to do anything else. If you roll your own drill down to ‘Filesystems > FUSE’ and either compile it in statically or enable it as a 'M'odule, then compile and install your kernel.

I have no idea what this means. Can someone help me through this tutorial as if I was five

Thank you very much for your time fellow Vergeians,

Christopher Malone.
