Partitioned 9.1mb drive 2+7gb needs to be ONE Win2K sp4

I have a server that has drive 0 partitioned the boot side to 2gb. This was done because of the previous OS. I am at the limit of the drive and cannot delete any other files. I need to remove the partition and make it whole. Partition Magic won't work on servers. Is there a safe way to make it whole? I have all the discs to re-install programs. Can I backup, re-install WIN2K NTAS and sp4 it. Is my data on other drives at risk?

Full config: Proliant 800, 1gb mem, 4-9.1gb internal, Drive 0 part C: is boot. Proliant Storage Tower with 7 18.2gb Hot drives Raid5 software.

Thanks in advance, Pete

Re: Partitioned 9.1mb drive 2+7gb needs to be ONE Win2K sp4

i´ll to do this:
Backup data of the rest of disk (logic units)
Clear this partitions
Format whole 9.1 GB hdd as only one partition
Intall OS + SP
Restore your data in other partition
Reconfigure sharings and security
The other partitions are safe because you select the partition to format.
If other friends have other way, wellcome

So, I should simply move the 2nd logical drive's data to another phyisical disk, backup the boot partition C: data, then re-run the CD choosing to use the entire Drive 0 as C drive?
