Unhappy Empty Partition

I made a partition on my Windows C: drive, and installed Knoppix onto it. I deleted Knoppix from it, and now it is just an empty partition. I want to know how I can redistribute the 5 gigs I set aside

You could use a program that can resize/create partitions. PQ - Partition Magic is the best one IMHO. Non-free though. There are some free tools around that you could take a look at on Some Linux distributions as Mandrake provides nice tools for resizing partitions as well. Take a look at it .

Good luck!
