    Hmm, that's an old kernel but I guess that's what the popular distros use nowadays. The best thing to do is enable quota and see what happens. If the kernel doens't support it (which I doubt), then you should be able to install it as a loadable module.
    The best things in life are free.

    Actually, quota support has to be compiled into the core kernel. If the stock kernel doesn't come with it, you have to recompile the kernel to include it.

    Thanks Dolda

    But is there a way to know if this quota support is compiled into the kernel which I am already using?? Does the presence of
    /sbin/quotacheck and other commands confirm this ?

    Thanks

    Just their presence doesn't indicate it. Try using them to set a quota instead. Then you'll probably find out.
