Shrinking a Server 2008 Volume ?

No doubt a simple one but I'm looking for some advice from a Pro
I have just installed a new Dell Server - Server 2008 came with RAID 1 configuration
Upon installing the server the whole drive had been partitioned as c:\ @ the factory there was no available space to create a D partition so I proceeded to use the Shrink feature to shrink the C back to 100GB and then created a simple volume, which I assigned drive letter D.

Is the Shrink option the right way to go, I have never used it before, normally I simply rebuild the Server and create a D after the install using the free space on the drive.

The original C drive partition was 456 GB and the OS was taking 15GB, the C is now 100GB and the D is 3G1

I don't need issues with this Server.I am sure what I have done is normal practice I just need to make sure it will work OK long term before I deploy the server to users. Thoughts / Advice please.
