small biz server 2003 network drives show wrong size for non domain admins

Hello, I recently deployed a Small Business Server 2003 with 5 XPsp2 desktops.  There are 3 mapped drives via VB script in group policy.  The server has one RAID5 set with two partitions.  All the mapped drives go to shared folders on the larger E: partition.  Domain Users security group has full access in share and folder permissions on all the shares.  All users are added to domain users security group.  
The problem is if a user is NOT in the domain admins group, the mapped drives show up with the wrong size.  All three drives should show up with the same total size of 122GB and the same available space of 80GB.  For one user they show just under 1gb total space with 30mb open for two drives and zeros for the third drive.  Another user shows 300mb for two and zero for the third.  This seems to affect how much data the user can actually move to the drive.  Over a gig for the first user and they get a not enough space error.  If I move the user to the domain admins group then all is fine.  I can not see any permissions issues.  Whats going on??  All win update patches loaded on desktops and server.  These boxes where ghosted with sysprep also.
Thanks for your help.

Any chance dis quotas have been enabled for the users? To confirm; My Computer | Appropriate drive -properties | Quota | see if "enable Quota management" is checked. If so un-check or look at the ""Quota Entries".

That's it.  SBS03 apparently sets to 1GB by default, and I am blind ; )
Thanx a bunch.
