What you need to do is, as root, touch the file quotas in the root
directory of the file system on which you want to run quotas and then
use edquota to define quotas for your users. Then you can use quotaon to
enable quotas. I'd also use quotacheck to make sure the initial quotas
match the users' disk allocation.
You'll also need to modify the file /etc/vfstab and add the quota option
to the mount statement for the quota-ed file system so that quotas are
enabled on boot up.
