You don't set space limits on a folder, on Windows 2000 server you can set
disk quotas for a disk on the server. It can be a quite in depth subject so
rather than post an incomplete summary here that might miss out something
crucial to you, or just paste large sections of the help file which would be
pointless, I'm going to suggest you consult the Windows 2000 help system.
Search for "Disk Quota".

If you are still using NT 4 server, there are 3rd party products that can do
this. Obviously the details are then specific to the 3rd party product
