If you mean how many spaced whould be used on the c drive, i would say try and keep up to 30% of free space. I don't have any papers to verify this, just a good feeling of experience...

The more you put on the c drive, the slower it gets. For the best possible performance, i would create multiple partitions if i where you and only install the operating system on the first partitions (and make it 5 Gb big).. Notheing else on the c drive, all extra programs or databases (e.g. Exchange or NTDS databases) on the d drive and all data and profiles and home dirs and so on on a sperate E drive...
