No, what has to be done is that the kernel has to be remade to suit your
new needs (ie "rolling your own").
Go to /usr/src/linux and type "make menuconfig" to get an idea of what it is
about BUT the KERNEL HOWTO, the SuSE handbook etc. are useful preliminary
reading. Not for the faint hearted but usually straightforward.
I don't know about quota templates 'cos I've never actually used quotas.
There must be something in the HOWTO.

Best wishes, Derek Harding
