    Well I made it to page 4 of the fedora 7 perfect install and started having problems. When I went to yum install quota there was no arguments I kept on going thinking maybe it was already installed. I edited /etc/fstab and added usrquota,grpquota to the /. Then when I went to run mount -o remount /, quotacheck -avugm, and quotaon -avug they did not work so I rebooted my sytem to see if the usrquota would mount on a reboot however it screwed everything up and now my system is totally read only and I can't change fstab back or edit anything. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Found my own fix
    mount -t ext2 -o rw,remount /dev/hda6 /

    This command remounts the drive in R/W mode which allows me edit my fstab and remove what I added and reboot.
