You just need to run quotacheck the first time you're going to use a filesystem 
for quotas (so that it can create its database on the filesystem).  For 
example, if you're going to create quotas for users in /home:

quotacheck -cu /home

If it's for groups then:

quotacheck -cg /home

Regarding boot time, the quotacheck command is run by /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit 
(which runs everytime the system starts) so no need to worry.
