    Your question isn't clear, but it sounds like you erased the boot camp partition and now you want to get your drive back to one partition. This unfortunately requires reformatting the whole drive.

    You'll need to back up your Mac drive, boot from your OS X install DVD, open Disk Utility, change your partition scheme back to 1 partition, apply the new partition scheme, reformat, and reinstall OS X. Then you can restore your data from your backup.
