Get Partition Magic which will convert OS2, Win NT, and FAT files back and forth without losing your data.

i don't use os2 anymore and just want that space for windows 95 about 1 meg of space. so should i delete os2 or change that drive to fat first then delete os2

Commented:
If you don't have any important files you want to keep, format the entire partition and your done. Get PM3.0 to combine both partitions. Also, sounds like you would also need to change the info on your boot manager, since it looks like you have multiboot capabilities.

Are you sure it is only "1 meg"? You sure are wasting time for only 1 meg.
