smbcquotas will definetely work under the following conditions:

1) SMB server is something nt-like (w2k or w2k3)
2) disk quotas are enabled
3) \\server\share is ROOT of filesystem.

ntfs5 doesn't allow to have different quotas for directories on a single 

not sure smbcquotas will work on samba. also I do not know any filesystem 
which allows disk quotas per directory. Usually you have to put 
directories on separates partitions in order to achive that.
