creating 1000 users with disk quota of 30MB
 
i need to create 1000 users on RHEL 4. i have created a shell script to do so.

for i in `userlist.txt`
do
useradd -d /mnt/new/$i -p $i $i
chown -R $i:$i /mnt/new/$i
echo "useradded- $i"
done
but i want to limit each users disk quota.

please tell me how should i proceed.

one more thing i want to know is what is the default quota of a linux user in RHEL4 created through useradd command.

Here's the RHEL4 HOWTO http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...sk-quotas.html.
You may be able to take advantage of the -p (prototype) switch if RHEL4 supports it http://linux.die.net/man/8/edquota
BTW, RHEL4.x went out of regular support in February; have you paid extra for the 'Extended Support' option?
