I'm sorry to hear that your having problems.  It appears that your 2.4.18-xfs 
kernel doesn't have the new Quota code.

Where did you get your 2.4.18-xfs kernel from?  Is it from SGI XFS CVS? or 
from the official split patches? or another source?

If is is from the official split patches did you include the 
xfs-2.4.18-split-quota32 patch?  It appears that oss.sgi.com is down at the 
moment so I cannot check the current file name.

Nathan Scott has advised me that I should change the name of the patch anyway 
as it relates to any kernel that has the new Quota code not just the XFS
