I don't know what you entered to get the first message.  You don't say.

But, on the second, /etc/rc.conf is NOT an executable file.
It is a data file that other programs and scripts read to set
variables for their operations.   You might need to edit /etc/rc.conf
(with vi or emacs or some other editor) to change variable settings, 
but you would not execute it.

Where are you getting your information about starting quotas?
Which steps have you actually tried?
