basic memory division question

It is the question in my mind for long.Even though it may be trivial ,i think 
of asking it to the group.
The question is
How the Physical Memory is divided in among USER and KERNEL space.I mean the 
amount of memory allocated for both.And starting address of both the Kernel 
space and User Space.
Longtime before i have seen in the list that Kernel is getting loaded at 
0xc0010000+X where X is getting translated to physical address.
Please enlighten me in this regard
Thanks in advance
