    A NFS share is an exported directory/partition -- so you'd have to shape these.

    If you're looking to limit the amount of data that can be put on a NFS share, you can setup a partition (probably easiest using LVM if your server is setup for it). You can also use quota and enable it on the partition (root or otherwise) and fine tune it from there (http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Quota.html).
