1.  Put it on it's own partition
2.  Get Quota Software that supports folder and/or group quotas

(Assuming you are running Windows).

Linux/Unix systems may give that ability out of the box.

If file system is NTFS, Windows2000 and later support it out of the box, too.

The quota is specific to NTFS system files, if the OS is Windows with ntfs and the quota applies to users connected to that computer, local or from the network.

2000/2003 quotas ONLY work for users.  If you are trying to put a "group" quota, you can't.  For example, if you want to limit the accounting staff to use 1 GB of space, you can't without third party software.  If you want to limit "Joe User" to 250 MB of space, then you can do so by enabling quotas on the server (right click the drive and look for a Quota tab).
