Default Quota setup on Perfect Ubuntu setup not working for me

I am completely new to linux...

Im going though "The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server (Edgy Eft)" and I'm on page four and everything so far I think I did correct the only thing I had any trouble with was set 8, I got the same error that someone posted about at the bottom of the page. So instead of the long command I did this:

apt-get install binutils cpp cpp-4.0 fetchmail flex gcc gcc-4.0 libarchive-zip-perl libc6-dev libcompress-zlib-perl libdb4.3-dev libpcre3 libpopt-dev lynx m4 make ncftp nmap openssl perl perl-modules unzip zip zlib1g-dev autoconf automake1.9 libtool bison autotools-dev g++


apt-get install linux-libc-dev

After that I went though step 9 until I get to:
"mount -o remount /"

at that point im getting an error saying that:

"mount: / not mounted already, or bad option"

Does anyone know what I did wrong?

I'm really unsure of whats going on so any help would be very much appriciated.

Looks like you have a different partitioning scheme. Instaed of remounting the partition you can just reboot your server.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Default Install packages

Was it ok that installed the packages that way? It look like everything was succesfull?

And when i set up the partitions i did them the same as the how to. Although his says scsi and mine is just an ide drive. but still its got 2 partitions, the main one and the swap one.
