Setting up disk quotas in Win 2000 Server

I am running Windows 2000 Server on an IBM Xseries server. I have a problem regarding space on the harddrive. I have 1,300 users who save their work in my server's profiles directory. Right now they save as much as they want, but I want to limit the amount of available space for each user. Is it possible?

Use the disk quota capability built into the system. Here is a Microsoft article with instructions.
If that is not sufficient, go here and search on "disk quota".
