Oracle 9i - return space after SQLPLUS TRUNCATE

I've just deleted a huge amount of data from several tables using the SQLPLUS TRUNCATE command.  Unfortunately this doesn't have any affect on the size of the database backup.  What options do I have for reducing the size of the database and backup files (easiest method first please)?
