It depends on applications and on users ...
But generally you should to provide separate disk for user profiles and homes and publish it via share not via disk letter. This guarantees easy migration to more powerful solution in the future.

With your disks... 2*146 for OS (mirrored) and 4*146 in RAID5 for users.
