Netware 4.1: using template to restrict folder size

I am trying to automate the restriction of home space folder sizes when creating new users.  The user template allows you to create home directories when creating new users, but there is no straightforward way to restrict home space sizes at the same time.  I've had to manually go to each user's home directory to change the FACTS property to restrict the home directory.  I've noticed a setup script box in the user template but I don't know the syntax to perform the command if it is possible this way.

You create a user template in the same context as the users and you can set most of the user defaults for that template just like you would for a user, then when you create new users they will start out with those defaults. You can create a user template in any context you wish to put users by clicking on "Object" on the menu bar then on "User Template" and set it up just like you would a new user. Note: This does not change any users that where there before creating the template.

Modifying the user templates can perform alot of the default tasks but there is nothing within the user template that allows you to change the properties of the folder that is created for the user's home space.

There is no method I know of using Templates in Novell 4.1 to restrict home folder space.  In Novell 4.11 you can set-up user templates with the Volume Restriction option set to the limit you want to restrict the user.  All new users created with that template will then be have space restrictions.
I asked a CNI this question, and they could not tell me an easy way of changing the existing users' space limits either.

I know that NW4.11 will allow you to ammend the user space restrictions on certain volumes but if you've got NW4.10 and have know intention of upgrading then this is know good to you.

If you are creating lots of users at the same time, you can use the uimport program that comes will NW4.??.  With this you can use the user template and set the space restrictions.  If you are not creating lots of users at once, you might want to front end the uimport program.
