Is it possible to enforce user-level storage quota's on a Windows 2003 Server shared drive?

Ie. Can I enforce a maximum storage space for a particular user's "private" drive which is stored on the file-server?

    you can only set storage quotas on a disk not a folder as such without using some expensive third party appz

    unless of course you are using R2 and then its a whole new ball game
