quota - no such process

Hello, I have just installed quota and read howto.. But I have a problem with this tool..
Here is some errors while system boot:
Checking filesystem quotas:  /sbin/quotacheck -avugM
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/hda7 [/home] done
quotacheck: Checked 1504 directories and 18222 files
Activating filesystem quotas:  /sbin/quotaon -avug
quotaon: using /home/aquota.user on /dev/hda7 [/home]: No such process  
quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.

I have the lastest quota installed and it's compiled in my 2.4.24-ow and some settings for testing user:

# quota tester
Limity dyskowe dla user tester (uid 1011):
  System plików   bloki  miękki  twardy   pobł.   pliki  miękki  twardy   pobł.
      /dev/hda7    1928*   1024    1024              22     120     120
(It's in polish)

but when I try to run 'quota' as user 'tester' there is permission denied to /home/aquota.user (600) and checking quota fails.
