Question Config disk storage limit

Hi All,

I used samba (SMB protocol) shares one directory PUBLIC (with many sub-directories under this directory) from Linux Redhat which are being mapped a drive G: to Windows 9X, users can access their sub-directory (folder) with write / read permission, and the users of NT server do have no account on Redhat system. Config of smb.conf as follows:

comment = pubic share folder
path = /home/public
public = yes
writable = yes
guest ok - yes

* many sub-folders under PUBLIC such as Mary, John, Tom ... etc

Each user will access their username's folder (ie G:\PUBLIC\Mary), the purpose of the userfolder is for saving received emails or storing files. Now I must to control disk consumption limit for each user.

1) Any suggestion that I can control disk storage (quota) on each userfolder (ie G:\PUBLIC\Mary) which the users of NT do not need to login to Linux system. ONLY set quota on userfolders, not on the Linux user or group.

2) If Question 1 do have no way to solve, any other suggestion for this situation.
