Did I forget to mention that I have Windows 2000 on this PC?

and if u r system does not boot after this repair the installation by inserting win xp boot cd.go to repair and give these commands fixboot and fixmbr.and if it still doesn't work reinstall the win xp.
That sounds good. I just want to get the extra space that's currently going to waste. Another logical drive would be just fine.
I didn't find a free version of Partition Magic, and I don't really want to pay for this.
Eric, do I use the .zip file during windows, to avoid having to repair?
I get an alert when I try to delete the partition. First of all, the Linux one is the "Primary Partition," not sure if that's important. This is the alert I get when I try to delete the Linux partition:
"Deleting this partition will change the number of the partition that contains your Windows 2000 system files. You will have to change your boot.ini file after the delete is complete, and reboot your machine. Do you want to continue?"
I don't know how to change the boot.ini file, or what to change in it.
