So I made an attempt to install xp via bootcamp and it didn't work I'm guessing its due to my damaged install disk. Any how I booted back into osx, erased the boot camp partition, and reformatted it for mac os extended. But I can't figure out how to merge this free space back to my original macintosh hd partition which is where it originally came from. Is this possible? or am I going to have to backup format and reinstall?
