disk/directory quotas

Just wondering if there was a way of setting a quota/size limit on a folder/directory. I have 2 network drives (each directing to a different directory) and I was wanting to put a limit on each of those directories. I have read something about a usrquota/grpquota in editting my fstab file.

redhat has a good howto for using user-/groupquotas.
--> repquota, edquota

if you wish to use it under FC, google for it. unfortunately I have no direct link at the moment...
