You'll have to set up quotas again from scratch on the new partition
-- you can't make the quotas on the root partition extend to cover
/usr/home.  It may be possible to script copying the actual file and
byte limits from what you've setup on the root and copy them into

Turning off quotas on the root partition is pretty simple -- just edit
/etc/fstab to take out the 'userquota' mount flags, remount the root

    # mount -u /

and then delete the quota.user file.
