Defining quotas on shared folders

I have been playing around with the disk quota management for my users' home folder on the file server, and it's working fine. Is there a way to define quota for local/global group on a shared folder? I am using Win2k's default quota management and not third-party software like Spaceguard.

The best way to do this would probably be to set aside a volume specifically for folders being shared with quotas on it, since the granularity of the quota system doesn't allow folder-by-folder quotas.
