Default unallocated harddrive space

I've got something like 179 gigs of unallocated hard drive space. How can I merge that with my main windows partition?

Thanks

It's on drive partitioned into two peaces. I think it got there when I was messing around trying to set up a linux partition.

Would I have to use something like partition magic, or is there a way to do it manualy?

The only option is Partition Magic. It's gonna cost you unless you decide to do one of those third-party downloads. The only other way to fix that is to FDISK the drive, but of course that will require you to remove the old partition in order to create one partition.
