I know there are some winapi functions that can get the capacity of the drive itself, but in situations where the user has a fixed directory quota, how exactly would I check this with MFC?

It's not really straightfoward as one would expect - take a look at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/system/DiskQuota.aspx ("Reading quota information on an NTFS volume"), this article comes with full source code.

I'm not sure if this is going to work or not. Say for instance they are running novell and the user wants to copy his files to a directory that is quota limited by the server. will it treat this directory as an ntfs volume? i'm kind of confused about that.

That should be covered transparently by the underlying software layer which manages the network connection itself.
