FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE #1: Thu Nov 26 12:41:38 CET 2009     root at megatron.expro.lan:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MEGATRON  amd64
I`m installed FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE on my Dell PE860 machine. I got source of system from cvs ->
After compiled world and kernel, and installed world, kernel I put to /etc/fstab this line:

/dev/da0s1a / ufs rw,groupquota,userquota,noatime 1 1

I reboot the system and after kernel started I got this error:

---cut here---
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/da0s1a
mount option <groupquota> is unknown
mount option <userquota> is unknown
ROOT MOUNT ERROR: mount option <userquota> is unknown
If you have invalid mount options, reboot, and first try the following from the loader prompt:

      set vfs.root.mountfrom.options=rw
---cut here--

Of course "set vfs.root.mountfrom.options=rw" lets the system correctly starts, but I want userquota, groupquota in options for mount the root partitions.
1) Clean install FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE from CD/DVD or from cvs.
2) Put 'userquota,groupquota' options to line of root partition in /etc/fstab file
3) Reboot the system
