Disk Quotas by group? Windows Storage Server 03

Im looking for ideas on setting up a Disk quota on a Storage Server 2003.  Specifically I'm wanting to get some quotas on my User share.  It is not the only share on this volume so the built-in quotas won't really work.  And the reason for group level (im hoping) Is that I'd like to have no limit on IT and Execs, a 5gb limit on Front office folks then a 1gb limit on hourly employees.  So three different limits on the same volume, same share.

If this isnt accomplishable by Microsoft tools then Im totally open to 3rd party applications.

If you are using Server 2003R2 then you can impliment folder level quotas and do as you describe. If its the original version of 2003, then you can only impliment quotas by volume (partition). Even so you can specify different quotas for different groups/users

I did find that.. in the File Server Resource Manager.. which is fairly good I think.  However for organizations with a hundred or more users.. this could get tedious and create an administration nightmare.

Anything more automated?  Maybe GPO-based? Even those 3rd party utils?
