I'm running slackware 3.1 and kernal version 2.0.27. I have just one file system( / ), and QUOTA support is well installed (i can execute quota, quotactl, quotacheck, edquota, quotaon, quotaoff, repquoat commands).
Now, can anyone tell me what is the sequence of commands i should execute in order to define my users quotas. Also what is the format of an editted quota file (the one i get when i execute edquota user_name).

You should read the Quota-mini HOWTO.
In short, the procedure is:
- Change your startup scripts,
- Edit fstab,
- Reboot
Note: make sure you have a working boot disk before you do this.

Read `man 5 quota' and `man edquota' for the syntax of the quota file.
