    Go load up Boot Camp Assistant, select the third option in the first window.

    "restore the startup disk to a single volume"

    Boom, bye bye windows.

    Use the Boot Camp Assistant to remove the partition. The setup instructions describe the procedure.

    Hope this helps.

    It took about 30 mins to do the bootcamp thing and about 1 hour to install XP (then an additional 1 and a half to install everything that i wanted on there.)

    Your times will vary depending on how full your drive is, how faster your drive is, etc.

    I'm having problems restoring my Boot Camp partition to a single volume after installing Windows Vista. The Boot Camp Assistant will get all the way to the end, prompt me to restart, but when I restart Windows Vista is still there.

    Is there any way to restore my drive to a single volume?

    I am trying to do the same thing

    but when I click on the Boot Camp Assistant it tells me that it has expired, do I have to download another program just to uninstall windows?

    i did that once, removing my boot camp partition, and it corrupted my drive, and couldnt be repaired with disk utility, although i could still boot and access my files and such.
