Default partition help

I partitioned my hd and set it up to run xp and fedora.

well i removed fedora and took the boot loader out of the mbr and deleted the partition but it did not get returned to my main partion

the partion that fedora was on was alittle over 5 gig and i really need that space back on my windows partition but windows didnt reclaim the space

the partion is empty and has no drive letter assigned to it. i know i could set it up as another drive in widows giving it a drive letter but i dont want that.

i want the space to go back to my main partition but dont know how. i cant seem to figure out how to do it in disk management and i have no way to boot to dos so could someone here please help me.

You can't do it in disk management you need a 3rd party app like partition magic and a whole lot of luck.
