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 /usr/home. Turning off quotas on the root partition is pretty simple -- just edit /etc/fstab to take out the 'userquota' mount flags, remount the root partition: # mount -u / and then delete the quota.user file.
