Deleting W2K Partition Without Disturbing XP Pro Partition?

    The NTFS formatted HDD on my PC contains three partitions. The boot
    partition was NTFS W2K Pro. Using Partition Magic v8 I added two more
    Partitions D - 50MB FAT16 partition for BootMAgic and E NTFS partition for
    XP PRO.
    I no longer want to use the original W2K partition. Partition Magic is
    installed on the original W2K partition. How can I delete the original W2K
    partition and the 50MB fat16 partition without disturbing the XP Pro
    partition?

    Thanks

    Simply install PM on the other partition, then Delete the W2K one.
    Fix Boot Magic when you reboot.
