    I have installed bootcamp but I cannot find bootcamp assistant to get rid of it, and get the space back. Is there any other way of doing so?

    To have installed Boot Camp, you had to use the assistant. So... did you accidently delete the assistant? It should be located in your Utilities folder.

    If it's not there anymore, you can reinstall it via the discs that came with your Mac.

    You could delete the Boot Camp partition using disk utility, I think.

    But first take a look into the "Utilities" folder within your "Applications" folder. The assistant should be there.

    It would be on disc 1, not the bundled applications install disc which has stuff like iLife on it. Using the "Go To Folder" command in the Go menu of Finder, with the following path: Volumes/Mac OS X Install Disc 1/System/Installation/Packages/ should bring up a Finder window inside of which is a BootCamp.pkg file. Double-click it to reinstall that Boot Camp Assistant to /Applications/Utilities, then use the restored Boot Camp Assistant application to remove the Boot Camp partition.
