Default "The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.5 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3]" (Quota help please!)

I've been having issues with "Quota" in every single install I've done (Ubuntu, CentOS, and SuSE) I am using CentOS for now. I do everything and everything seems to go correctly up to step 8 of the tutorial:

I install quota with:

yum install quota


vi /etc/fstab

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0

I input "usrquota" and "grpquota" as mentioned in the tutorial and above, but this is where the problems begin:

touch /aquota.user /

There is no visible output so I'm guessing it didn't work, but I continued:

chmod 600 /aquota.*

Still no output:

mount -o remount /

No output...
quotacheck -avugm

Now, it returns something like "processing" (sorry I dont know the exact message). It didnt finish within an hour so I just left it running all night but when I came back it still hasnt finished so I just scrapped it and came here. If you could help that would be amazing!
