If you use the smbldap-userbulkadd scripts it's quite easy to tweak got set 
quota's. I've altered / hacked the script for myself to set quotas and I had 
started work on allowing this as an configurable option in the userinfo.in file 
but got a bit snowed under when I started our main roll out for the year.

Yes WEBMIN rocks *grin*, I tend to use it in combination with LAM & the shell 
scripts to manage things. You can alter LAM to allow spaces etc. If you have a 
look on the LAM site and if they have an archive of mail look through this as I 
asked the question a couple of months back but I've forgot the answer :-\
