I have just set a quota on the students home areas. I am using the Server 2003 R2 quota management.
When a user clicks there home area the left hand pane shows the remaining storage on the server not the actual quota. Is it possible to show this?
It did it the old way in server 2003.
is there any other way to display the quota, possibly a script?
Maybe you would consider using Samba as a homedirectory server. There are a number of advantages to samba which I listed here:

We will be sticking with Windows, thanks anyway
From memory I think it's to do with how you map your home directories.
This should correctly display the quota.Code:\\SERVERNAME\USER$
This won't display the quota correctly.Code:\\SERVERNAME\PUBLIC\HOME\USER
Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 do a much better job at displaying quotas using either method. Just another XP blip I think.
Yes and I would agree. Vista does do 'some' things better than XP, but it could easily be fixed with a patch for certain. Quotas are nothing new after all...Smells like a 'buy vista' blip to me...
