Unhappy How set disk space for particular user using command edquota


Hi all,

last weekend I tried to add quota to some users on my server running Debian Sarge 3.1. ( First I added into /etc/fstab after defaults, userquota, grpquota.....I wanted to modified disk values for users on my home direcory---/dev/hda6)
I used command edquota -u xzy and I got VIM editable file to enter desirable disk values, after entering I wrote wq!+enter and I got next output:

edquota :WARNING /dev/hda6 cannot change current block allocation


afret that I entered command repquota -a and I got output qouta for all users including xzy, but field blocks still remain as before comand edquota -u xzy

Only I want edit disk space for particular users, and I found (I used google and man edquota) command edquota will help me to do it.
I would pritiete all kind of help and suggestions, because I have no idea ho to solve problem I have.

Thank you in advance.

is that a valid command? w=write, q!=quit w/out saving...I'm not sure how well that'd work.

Relating to quota's, were you running those commands as root? Something like this will require root priveleges.
