Default quota install problem

I have never been able to get quota to install properly
without a "Buffer I/O Error, dev hdc" by following the exact How To Instruction.

When I tried to install Ubuntu, different versions, if I were to use the the suggested disk size space (all free space) I could
never get quota to work. If I selected 30 G of a 40 G drive to be used, quota worked OK.

When I tried to install Centos Ver 4.8 or 5 using "automatic partitions" quota install failed every time. If I manually set up the different partitions, quota would install OK.

Am I the only one to have this "quota" problem?

I am now trying to install Debian Lenny, and yes! I am having to same quota install error using the How To
suggested partitioning scheme.

I am now going to install Debian Lenny again from scratch
and try a different partitioning scheme also load journaled quota to see if that makes a difference.

Am I the only one to have this "quota" problem?
Is so.... Why only me?
Help please.

Found the problem.
I have been using quick format on the drive I was installing my Linux system.

I finally got smart enough to to use chkdsk /r on the drive.
Found over 82meg of bad blocks.

Reinstalled Debian Lenny using the /var /boot /home ...
partition option. Installed "normal" quota.

All works fine.

Later that night:

Well almost. All looked good untill I went to load ISPConfig2.
"Not enough disk space, need 510 meg"

So I did a /sbin/shutdown -r -F now

Many failures!!!-- Best Buy here I come.
This hard drive caused me to up my Linux learning curve.
Make the best of a bad situation. So it wasn't a total lose of my time.
