Sounds to me like your home directory is in the "/" partition, so your 
fstab must be modified to look something like this line for the "/" 

LABEL=/      /       ext3    defaults,usrquota,grpquota        1 1

Once that modifications is made to the fstab file, reboot the linux box 
and go into webmin, quota's should work from that point on.
