You'll need to install a samba server on your Linux box so that you can setup shares on Linux that Windoze boxes can access. If you install samba you'll find its main configuration file called samba.conf. There should be enough comments there or within its accompanying documentation to enable you to setup the shares and individual quotas.

Cheers.
