Deleting Linux Partition

I have a 100GB hard drive, and 20GB of that is partitioned to a Linux installation. I am currently running XP on the other partition. What I want to do is to delete the Linux partition and subsume it into the Windows XP partition. Is there any way to get rid of the Linux partition without reformatting or reinstalling Windows?

Any help would be appreciated!

You should be able to run Partition Magic or a similar app in Windows to take care of that. Another option would be to use a windows boot disk and run FDisk. If I remember correctly, FDisk will see Linux partitions and should allow you to delete it. However, I think you'd need something like Partition Magic if you want to combine the two partitions.
