For detailed info, check out http://www.localnet.com.au/LDP/HOWTO/mini/Quota-4.html.

In brief:

Make sure you have quota support compiled into your kernel. I think this is probably why nothing is happening.

Hope that helps,

I have set the kernel. But still nothing happen...
When I edquota -u user1
it only shows:
Quotas for user user1:
~
that's all. Then I typed in manually all the stuffs same as the Mini-HowTo, is it just press <Esc> to the normal mode, type :wq to save and exit, that's all? Or I have to save as other file like :wq! {quota.user} ??

and when I check quota for other user1 by typing quota user1
it shows quota for user1(UID xxx): 0
why?
nothing changed....... please help me.... how to see if the quota is enabled in Kernel. I use the make menuconfig, type Y to the quota....and reboot...
nothing happens....
Please help me ......furthermore, how to set quota for user email account? Like not more than 2MB of mail to be stored? Because I am scared of someone bom my user email ...
Anyway, thanks in advance !!... Help... anybody out there.....Please......
