    Have a few questions: :confused:

    1. when i do an apt-get update
    I get the following error :
    Err ftp://ftp.gwdg.de SuSE/9.3-i386/security pkglist
    Unable to fetch file, server said '/pub/linux/SuSE/apt/SuSE/9.3-i386/base/pkglist.security.bz2: No such file or directory.
    Failed to fetch ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/SuSE/apt/SuSE/9.3-i386/base/pkglist.security Unable to fetch file, server said '/pub/linux/SuSE/apt/SuSE/9.3-i386/base/pkglist.security.bz2: No such file or directory. '

    2. quotacheck -avugm:

    quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.

    What's in /etc/apt/sources.list? It should be
    Code:
    rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.3-i386 base update security
    You don't have quota compiled into your kernel. You might try to load the quota module (if it's available):
    Code:
    modprobe quota_v1
    modprobe quota_v2
    (if you're successful, insert these two lines into /etc/modules so that the modules are loaded each time you boot your system).
    If this doesn't work, then you have to compile a new kernel... :(

    k check the sources.list and this is what is found in the file:
    rpm ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.3-i386 update securit
    rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/SuSE/apt/ SuSE/9.3-i386 update security rpmkeys

    then i check in the software installed and found quota installed. The funny thing is the following works ok

    Made mistake in my post its not
    quotacheck -avugm (run ok)

    but quotaon gives me those error reported earlier.

    Along these lines I don't have a /home entry in my /etc/fstab...

    Using SuSE 9.2 - and I have forgotten everything I used to know about these files...should I add one?

    Then you don't have a partition for /home. Maybe you have a large / partition?
    Don't change /etc/fstab! :eek:

    I am using a dual hd system...my main drive is a 60 gig drive which I made one single partition (ie my / ) and I added a 200 gig as my /data/ path. (gotta love the fact that a 1.2 Ghz processor with 512 megs of ram can be such a workhorse under linux)

    the 200 gig drive holds my srv as well (i.e /data/srv). While I doubt we are going to cram the drive full, I wouldn't mind being able to set up some liits as to what each site could eat up.

    Should I add the aquota lines to those fstab entries or just forget quotas for now? It isn't huge since I am only hosting 3 or 4 domains for me and a friend.

    You have to create the aquota.* files on /data then and add ,usrquota,grpquota to the line for the /data partition in /etc/fstab.
