Default Un Partitioning?

OK, I have 2 hard drived in my computer, one with windows xp. i have a hard drive which has lots of different partitions on it because i used to have Ubuntu linux but it broke so i deleted the partitions and noe i have a load of different drives on the hard drive. I was wondering wether i will be able to "un partition" the drive and make the hard drive just one drive.

I am using windows XP Pro service pack 2. I have looked in disk management under computer management but i cant find the feature.

Thanks

if possible just delete all of the partitions and make a new one. This will erase all the data on the drive so only do this after you have backed up everything important.

If you can't do that then take a look at partition magic.
