Enlarging existing partition


hi,
I have windows(xp)/linux(mandrake 10.1) dual boot system and in the c drive which houses windows I had put in 30GB of space but it only shows 20GB and I can see the remaining 10 GB when I check while running linux hardware config. my question is can I safely delete this 10GB partition and extend the c-drive from 20GB to 30GB by using linux configuration without affecting the windows installation.

if you want to add the 10gb partition to your XP partition, give partition magic a go. i'm not aware of any linux tool that will do that w/o destroying any existing data.
