Easier to use the disk quotas. This can be configured on a per user or 
group basis.

First add this to your /etc/fstab:

    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                       ext3   
    defaults,usrquota,grpquota        1 1

Then restart. After the restart, run the quotacheck command. You may 
need to create a script to start disk quotas when the computer starts. 
After it is setup, use the edquota -u <username> command to edit the 
quota sizes. Here is a link for more info:


You can also configure quotas using the Webmin utility (which I find 
much easier).
