is there a specific reason besides resiurces i guess that you want it to run text only? can i log in after a reboot in text only mode if i install a gui?
You can do that in GUI mode, but you might get in trouble with some GUI editors that comaplain about permissions with some system config files. Better use the console!

Quota is a limit for the space a user can use. E.g., you give a user a quota of 10 MB, then the user cannot use more than 10 MB.

Yes. BTW, I hope your /etc/fstab has one line for each partition, not one line at all (because that's the way you posted it here).

Don't understand the question.

If you do not want to reinstall your server, i recommend to use a Linux Boot CD like knoppix, then mount your server harddisk in knoppix. Then make the mounted partition your root with the chroot command and set a new password with the passwd command.
