Question Enable user quota

hi!

i would like to enable user quota on my system (FreeBSD 6.2)
i've check on enabling user quota here but i still confuse with fstab

it shows there:
Code:
/dev/da1s2g   /home    ufs rw,userquota 1 2

but my current /etc/fstab :
Code:
# Device                Mountpoint      FStype  Options         Dump    Pass#
/dev/ad4s1a             /               ufs     rw              1       1
/dev/ad4s1d             /tmp            ufs     rw              2       2
/dev/ad4s1b             none            swap    sw              0       0

can i just add
Code:
/dev/ad4s1c   /home    ufs rw,userquota 1 2

to make user quota on /home work?
