Step 1: at a command prompt type diskperf -yv and re-boot. This enables the logical and physical disk counters.
Step 2: Start,Programs,administrative tools,Performance.Select Performance Logs and Alerts. Then roght click Alerts and select New Alert Settings and give it a new name. Then click add. Performance Object will be logical disk, Counter will be %free space.Click add and close then  specify the value and set your action to send a network message.

If you need a little more clarity let me know..Hope this helps..
