How to remove partition/ dual boot done via bootcamp?

Hi:
I have a Macbook and have it partitioned using bootcamp to install Windows XP. However, I'm not happy with my initial allocation of the % of the harddrive assigned to the windows partition, so I want to redo the partition, that is, remove the windows partition and re-do it again using bootcamp. Can someone tell me if that's possible? If not, would a clean install of OSX Tiger wipe out both partitions?

Thanks,

Just go to the Boot Camp Assistant in Applications/Utilities and select delete Windows partition.

Open Boot Camp Assistant and select the option to restore the partition to a single volume.

Once that's finished, you can redo the entire process.

It is definitely worth doing a backup before you restore your drive to a single volume. I did it just the other day and although I didn't lose any data , I did find a lfew bits of software refused to work properly, Ableton.
