It's Group Policy, but it's implemented entirely on the client.  I
just tested it out against a Samba PDC with no server-side quotas
enabled, and it works.

Setting each computer's group policy without an Active Directory is
harder, but it's still doable.  (You could do it manually in
gpedit.msc, or try using a tool like Nitrobit, or try setting the
registry keys manually or with a script.)
