Question Fixing partitions with Gparted?


Hello,

I currently have Xubuntu and Mac OS X on my PowerBook G4, however, I recently got a netbook and use Ubuntu via USB on it and now would prefer to have only OS X on my powerbook. I would like to use Gparted to restore/fix my partitions and don't exactly know what I need/don't need and also how to resize my os x HSF+ partition back to full size? An image below shows my current setup (kinda messed up I think.) What steps should I take in Gparted to delete the unnecessary partitions and give OS X it's full size?

Thank you so much!

You are probably better off using Mac software when dealing with HFS+. You have disk utility, and boot camp on the MAC install DVD which will take care of this properly.

Okay, so using disc utility, what steps would I take to get back just OS X using the full hard drive space?
