Default Problem Installing Quota - Fedora 9

I'm a complete newbee to both web servers and Linux. I am following the "Perfect Server - Fedora 9" tutorial and have run into a problem with Step 9 - Installing Quota. I edited the fstab file as indicated in the tutorial and when I try the "mount -o remount /" line, I get the message " mount: / not mounted already, or bad option".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Default Thank you

Thanks for your response. I finally gave up and re-installed again from the beginning and all is working fine (I hope). I can only assume that I made a mistake somewhere along the way.

Thank you
