Re: How do I join my old partition to my new Linux one?
EDIT: I missed that you have a WUBI install - Please follow the advice from mick222 - it is your only real option!
EDIT: This if for non-wubi: While it is not possible to 'merge' two partitions together, you can get the same 'net effect' by doing this:
1) Boot into windows and do a defrag on your Windows partition. This will be the last time you ever use Windows.
2) Boot into Ubuntu, and copy as much data as you can from your Windows partition (it may not be all the data).
3) Delete the data you have managed to copy from the Windows partition, and then use Gparted to shrink the Windows partition down.
4) Boot from your Ubuntu LiveCD, and using Gparted from the LiveCD, expand your Ubuntu partition to use the new space.
You may have to repeat these steps until all your data is moved into your Ubuntu partition.
Once all your data has been moved, boot from the LiveCD on last time, and use gparted to delete the Windows partition and expand your Ubuntu partition to fill the disk drive.
Now Boot into Ubuntu, and get rid of the 'Windows' choice in grub be doing this:
