Here is a good start to understand what they do and how to configure correctly.

You can either use the traditional method and enable it per volume, or you can use the new method added in to Server 2003 R2 which lets you do it per folder.  Here's a nice article on it:

After installing the File Server role in Server 2003 R2, you will have access to the File Server Management tools under Control Panel > Administrative Tools. In the File Server Management tool, you can create quota policies for particular folder paths. This tool gives you advanced control of the quotas, and can also produce reports on file server usage.

Unlike previous versions of Windows Server, Server 2003 R2 allows you to create quotas on a per-folder basis which is particularly useful.

You need to add it in using Add/Remove Programmes .  I think it also requires you to install .NET Framework 2.
Alternatively, add the File Server Resource Management role from "Manage Your Server".  The link I gave earlier shows this.

If it's not listed, perhaps you didn't allow the 2nd disc of Server 2003 R2 to install when you first installed the OS?

Install the File Server role using the 'Manage your Server' wizard. Once you have done this, File Server Management will be visible in Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
