You don't mount an FTP server to a local mount point. You mount NFS or a Samba/CIFS share if you want a remote filesystem to appear to be locally accessible. With FTP, you login to the server but you can't mount it.

This is a question-Please Respond

I am trying to allot quotas to users, I am following the instructions laid down in the article http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...ge_with_Quotas as accurately as I can, I went to the single user mode and
edited the fstab file, mounted and remounted the home directory exited the single user mode and went to init 5 level and entered the following commands. However, please notice that with entering the "edquota" command, why is the vi editor not opening up. Any solutions? Thank you very much!
Sincerely,
Bonny Bhattacharjee


bash-3.2# touch /home/aquota.user
bash-3.2# chmod /home/aquota.user
chmod: missing operand after `/home/aquota.user'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.
bash-3.2# quotacheck -vagum
quotacheck: Can't find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.
bash-3.2# touch /home/aquota.user
bash-3.2# chmod 600 /home/aquota.user
bash-3.2# quotacheck -vagum
quotacheck: Can't find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.
bash-3.2# edquota -u joe
No filesystems with quota detected.

This has nothing to do with your original question about kickstart. You should start new threads in the future. Don't double post though, I've reported this to be split from this thread into it's own new thread.
