Richard R Moorage asked:

 I can think of a couple of ways to do per **share** quotas:
     1) with force user, make all files in specific shares
 	be under the control of Unix quotas	
     2) with root preface, refuse to allow connections
	to overeat shares
     3) with root post exec, nag users if they overfill a share
     4) with root post exec, make the directory non-writable
	when it gets overfilled

and so on...

  Send me mail and tell me what the expected requirements are
and how the NT guys would do it, maybe we can design something
