My original question: how to edit several users' quota at once?

Thanx to everyone who replied. Most answers were similar:

        edit one person's quota (user1)
        then use edquota -p user1 user2 user3 user4 ...

This will duplicate user1's quota to the rest of the list.

This will do the job although as long as you want all the quota's to be
identical. also sent me a program which will let you
set/update quotas from the command line instead of having to do it thru
vi, so a script could be used to set a whole bunch of people's quotas.

Thanx to the following list for a quick response:
