It should work if administered share is a mount point (in Linux at least)
and you are trying to manage it using administrative account.

For example, suppose you have /home mount point and /home/auv is a user
home. Then:

path = /home
admin users = @"Domain Admins"

Will allow to set per-user quota on share E$ when logging in as user from
'Domain Admins' group. When you mount such share in W2K, XP, or W2K3,
you'll see additional tab 'Quota' in its properties. Then make all changes
you need to limit user 'auv' on whole /home. When user will connect to
his home share, those limitations will be applied.
