ok will look into this.. im not sure i was completely clear on our setup..
each vserver has its own partition so its controlled by that for the server
itself.. what i want is from within webmin when we assign a user admin and
create a domain to be able to specify a quota of how much disk space that
website/user-admin can have and to be able to notify if they go over or even
go so far as to suspend operations on that particular domain... one vserver
guest may handle 40+ websites each with their own quotas. and we want to be
ble to select it within webmin/virtualmin rather than have yet another manual
operation if its possible.. i have no clue what they are doing to specify
quotas as i have literally no experience with them, but whatever they do must
be standard so i would like if possible for the guest system to respond
properly to their requests/checks/

i literally know as much about quotas as i do building cold fusion reactors :)
