Which distribution are you planning to use quotas on?

If your kernel is farely new, you wont need to build in quota support. It's build into newer kernels.

This might help you:
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Quota.html


Perhaps your distro allready has it all working. To check it out try typing this in terminal as root:
Code:
quotactl
Have fun

sincerely, Jorgen

All distributions can be made to have quotas, not just Fedora. It just might be somewhat more work on a distro whose kernel isn't compiled for quota support, since you'll have to recompile it. The HOWTO mentioned above is very good.
