Thanx for pointing me to the right direction but I'm still encountering some trouble. Im not at my PC right now but this was what i did:

i edit my fstab like this
"/dev/hdd /home/hdd auto defaults,userquota 1 1"

then i typed this as root:

"touch /home/hdd/quota.user"

then i typed:

"edquota -u test" (test is a user that i added for experiment)

and i get this:

"No filesystems with quota detected."

Something i did wrong? i can't get passed that point. Can anyone shed some light? Thanx for all your help... Im using redhat 7.3 and im using the quota package that came with it. Also my /dev/hdd is ext2.

in fstab you have to add a usrquota not userquota. After you do this you have to restart or remount all partitions. The you have to run quotacheck. Hope this helps laterz.
