i would like to unpartition my c drive

By fireeyez2058 ·
i have windows 2000 pro and windows xp home on the same hard drive. I would like to know if i could delete windows 2000 pro safely without losing my win xp, and how would I go about doing it....I am not in the least a computer scientist, any information would be very helpful.
