Printers are shared and controlled from Windows. Sharing them should take up no additional space whatsoever regardless of what drive it's currently on.

Adding printers adds files to where Windows is installed. Symantec also downloads files to the Windows drive.
You may be able to remove some old temporary files and what not that are no longer needed but the other alternative is some sort of partitioning program such as PartitionMagic. These programs can be dangerous if you're not careful.
