QUOTA — Quota support


If you say yes here, you will be able to set per-user limits for disk usage (also called disk quotas). Currently, it works for the ext2, ext3, and ReiserFS file system. ext3 also supports journalled quotas, for which you don't need to run quotacheck after an unclean shutdown. For further details, read the Quota mini-HOWTO, available from, or the documentation provided with the quota tools. Quota support is probably useful only for multi-user systems.
