Question about user quota...

Hi, there!
When I used quotacheck -a to create quota file, I got the following error message:
Quotecheck: cannot get the qouta file name for /dev/hd3

I have modified the /etc/fstab as follows before the quotecheck -a command:
.../home ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 2

Can anyone please advise?
