Disk Quota

I'm running ext3 linux redhat 9.0.. I know that you can do disk quota on file system ext2. Can you also do on ext3?

If ext3 won't allow, how do I convert ext3 to ext2.. without losing data and configuration.

ext3 can do quotas. Heck, ext2, reiser, jfs and xfs can do quotas too, although I think its an additional kernel option with either of the last two.
