Question removing a win xp partition and converting it over to ext2fs

I'm currently running a dual-boot configuration with FC2 and Win XP but i would now like to completely remove Win XP and its NTFS partition. Is there any way i can remove the partition and allow FC2 to use it as disk space?

I used a program called bootit, well something like that, its free to download. Just copy it to a disk, and boot to it. You can then resize, delete or move a partition. Delete the windows partition, and resize the linux partition to however big you want it.
