Question how to set quota at /home

[root@localhost sysconfig]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
20G 7.0G 12G 38% /
/dev/sda3 99M 8.0M 86M 9% /boot
none 248M 0 248M 0% /dev/shm
I would like to set quota at /home, but I can't see /home.
I believe it is because of Logical Vol, how to stop it and umount it,
what is next?

I successed to make quota on other machine, if it was no LV.

my machine is FC3

Did you create a separate partition for /home during the install? Based on your output, it doesn't look like it. Quotas work on the filesystem/partition level, so you'll either just have to set a quota for the root filesystem (which will encompass /home) or create a loop partition for /home. You should probably also check out the TLDP quota howto if you haven't seen it already.
