I formatted my whole drive as one partition and realize now that was a mistake. Is it too late to reclaim some space for another partition? I formatted it with the WinXP installer. Thanks.

Why do you think it is a mistake? 1 partition per disk is generally better than multiple partitions.
 
It will require an aftermarket software such as Partition Magic to reclaim some space from existing partition to make another partition.....

YOu will not be able to do it with WinXP without deleting the existing partition, and starting over...
