Someone who's more experienced with setting up XP should help you here, but I know that on my XP machines there is a "hidden" partition with system restoration files in it. If your machine boots up alright it is likely OK.

You could try removing the second partition and see what happens, but if you really have C: that small and it's not the hidden partition, then you just may have to reformat and try again. If worse comes to worst you may have to burn the drive to zeros, put a new ntfs partion in and reformat. You may be able to download software to help you from the drive mfr. website.
