XP has its own application to do this called Disk Management.

Right click on My Computer and choose 'Manage'.

Then choose Disk management.

Right click on the left hand side of the entry that relates to your new drive and select 'initialize'.

Then right click the right hand side and select new partition. From here you can partition and format.
