Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Use a live cd from Parted Magic and delete the partition you want to and extend the Ubuntu partition. You should, by the way, be very sure about the partitions so that you do not delete the wrong partition.
If this is a pre-installed version of Vista there will probably be a recovery partition that can be deleted. When you get to the partition stage of Ubuntu's install the default option is to run Ubuntu side-by-side with your current os. The first drop down box allows you to choose various options for install like, guided, custom but the one you want is Use Entire Hard disk.
Did you run GParted from Ubuntu? Then it might be that you aren't able to delete a partition, i had the same problem yesterday under Fedora 13.
But you can download the GParted Live CD from the developers website und from there you can delete it.
Resizing the Ubuntu partition will only work, when both the vista and ubuntu partition lay side-by-side, if the swap partition for example lays between them it won't work, then you have to reinstall Ubuntu and choose the full-install like mentioned above.
Okay i decided to run a full system recovery threw Alienrespawn v2.0 so it is deleting ubuntu and vista and then reinstalling vista which doesn't really matter because once its done i will Redownload ubuntu so where is the option to do a full partition and delete vista note: i do not want to delete the secret partition of Alienrespawn because if Ubuntu messes up i will be screwed big time because alienware doesnt send recovery disks
