User administration question


Hello,

I am provisioning a server rhel5.3. I am creating 2 users in the box other than root. The default home dir is going to be /home filesystem (30GB).
Is it possible to provide 20gb to one user and 10 gb to another ?
How can i accomplish this ???

I am sorry, i dont know if this question is appropriate ??

Any thoughts on this would be really appreciated.

Thanks
srianirudh

you could just mount 20gig and /home/user1 and 10gig at /home/user2
or you could use user disk quotas
