Hello all,

I want to say thank you to everyone who replied to my question and I 
also want to send out an apology to the list as my question was 
apparently too vague for many and had some odd replies.

Also, before I even got my own message back from the listserv, I 
received 14 vacation messages.  Please don't enable vacation messages 
on accounts subscribed to a mailing list.

the answer - no, Solaris 9 with the default file system (UFS) only 
provides for user quota's, not group quota's.  Several people emailed 
to let me know that Veritas file system provides group quota's.

My original question is posted below.

Thanks again to everyone, this is a great list.

Jerry K
