Red face New Server Advice / Parition Size / Server 2003 R2

So I went and purchased an HP ProLiant ML350 w/ a Dual-Core Xeon processor, 4 GB RAM and 4-250 SATA HDD's in RAID-5.

So i'm currently at the screen where it's asking me to either make a partition or choose the partition i want to install Server 2003 R2 on.

Here i need some help. I have 715 GB of space available. I want to make 2 partitions, a C: and a D:. I want C: for Server 2003, and applications that will be run on the server. And D: to hold data (eg. user profiles and other data).

How much space do you think i will need to crate for C: that should sustain me for at least a few years?

I was thinking about 75 GB and leaving the other 640 GB for D:

What do you think?
