    Just format the D: drive ...

    As for your first query, there are many methods to do that:

    FDISK method:

    You can delete F: and H: , and from the unallocated space, create a new partition.

    Diskmanagement tool:

    You can use the DiskManagement tool (Control Panel->Adminstrative tools -> Computer management), delete both your partitions, and from the unallocated space, you can create a new one.

    IF you want to non-destructively join both the drives (ie, if they contain data that you cannot move elsewhere)

    Get Partition Magic (or even a boot disk containg PM will do) , select both the partitions, and choose the option merge.

    To remove XP from D: do the following:
    Create a bootable floppy and copy sys.com to it. Formatt the drive D: or remove all windows system files from D: . Boot from floppy. Type :- Sys C: and sit back and relax. Then boot again...Simple wasn't it??
