simple quota question


im kinda confused how the filesystem works within linux. just done a clean install of FC4, and there is 1 40gb hdd in it... hda3. im going to be giving users their own home dirs under /home/$username and setting a quota of 100mb. quotas are enabled in fstab for hda3, is that correct or do i have to mount /home as something else and enable quotas on that or something? And after that, is there just one command for setting the quota like edquota or something?

thanks in advance,

Docs on file structures.

Don't know the answer for quota. But I know it's possible.
I've seen it asked before.
