If I could get a link to a tutorial anywhere that tells me how to unpartition, this would be great as I can't find anything on the net so far that explains how to do this.

off the top of my head I think you need to delete the partitions you dont want then extend the other partition to include the unused space.

Alternatively you could use a third party utility like partition magic by power quest.

Back on the project, I can't get to delete the extended partition because it asks for the "volume label" and this field is blank, any ideas?

ok, got it done just by hitting the Enter button when it asks for the volume label.

Just for the knowledge, "when" does someone know to use a bootdisk and to use a startup disk?
