    Are they empty?, if they are, they you can delete them in "disc manager" or whatever it's called in XP.

    If they're not empty..., make them empty :)

    For free? Empty one of the partitions, delete it, then expand the other.

    Or, if you don't have the space for that.. Take the week off :)
    Shrink the second partition as much as you can, enlarge the other. Copy some files from second to first. Repeat until the second one is empty. Delete the second partition, enlarge the first.

    Who said anything about Microsoft tools? Or that all third-party tools are something you have to pay for??
