I would be very proud to see the tab "Quota" on a mapped network drive 
at all ;)

What I did:
- Build samba 3.0.20a (--with-quotas).
- Set up a machine with 2.4.26-1 and ext3 as root fs with enabled quota.
   vmeis # mount | grep quota
   /dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw,usrquota,grpquota,errors=remount-ro)
- Connect the share 'public' (path /public) to WinXP-SP2 drive Z:.

If I choose properties of Z:, I have only the tabs "General" and 
"Security" (in german "Allgemein" and "Sicherheit") - no tab "Quota" (in 
german "Kontingent").

Quotas are working. If I set up a userquota for the user 'tb' and 
working on the XP client as 'tb', the quotas are shown:

vmeis # df /dev/hda3

/dev/hda3              5004636   2952304   1798104  63% /
vmeis # quota -u tb
Disk quotas for user tb (uid 2001):
      Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit 
       /dev/hda3  321748  512000  614400            8333       0       0
