You can do this client-side with Group Policy; no server quota support
is needed.  (proquota, in the article you linked to, is apparently
just a client-side tool, and it looks like it was replaced by Group
Policy settings in Win2K and above.)

Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc
Go under User Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, User Profiles.
Double-click on "Limit profile size" and reivew the options there.
