To be able to see disk quotas you need to edit /etc/fstab and add 'usrquota,grpquota' to your mount points
example: I use mount point /mnt/sdc5
Code:
/dev/sdc5 /mnt/sdc5 reiserfs auto,noatime,users,usrquota,grpquota,suid,dev,exec 0 1 # AutoUpdate

after that you will be able to see disk quotas on Webmin. but you need to do a couple of things first to make it work.

Just do the following:
I will continue using mount point '/mnt/sdc5', you will probably use '/' as your mount point, so change it to yours.
Code:
touch /mnt/sdc5/aquota.user /mnt/sdc5/aquota.group
chmod 600 /mnt/sdc5/aquota.*
mount -o remount /mnt/sdc5

Now you can use disk quotas on webmin but since you are in bash you can enable it with the command:
'quotaon /mnt/sdc5/'
You can use quotacheck before enable them, example
'quotacheck -avugm'

Check all quota-enabled, locally-mounted file systems (-a)
Display status information as the quota check proceeds (-v)
Check user disk quota information (-u)
Check group disk quota information (-g)
Don’t try to remount filesystem read-only (-m)

and enabled them with arguments such as
'quotaon –avug'

Force all filesystems in /etc/fstab to have their quotas disabled (-a)
Display a message for each filesystem affected (-v)
Manipulate user quotas (-u)
Manipulate group quotas (-g)

But all those can be managed through webmin after doing the first steps
