deleting partition trouble..

after i found out linux wont work with my video card (some B.S) i needed the space back i used as a linux partition (1 gig) so i ran partition magic delete tool that came with my linux and i used to create the partition, but when i started to delete it, it got some error and exited and now it says it cant find the part to delete when i try to run it again..i cant figure out how to get back my gig of drive space..i tried downloading another partition tool but when i ran it, it didnt even show that i had another space partitioned it only said i had my regular windows one..here is a screen shot i took using partitionmagic(check part outlined in red) it has my FAT32 space and then the space i had linux on says "free space" 1223.7 mb..i want to get that free space onto my FAT32 space with windows

Have you tried fdisk that comes with the instalation in Linux. It should come up before you install linux. It won't reinstate the original Win partition size, but it will give you free space that you can designate with another drive letter to use under windows. I assume you have C: at the moment, this will give you another drive of 1gig as D: which is what I've got. I store all my personal work files on D: and the programs on C:

Sorry reread your question, you have got it back, run fdisk under a dos session in windows. Create an extended drive, then create a logical drive. It will ask you if assign all free space, say yes. Then exit fdisk, click on my computer, right ckick on D; drive, properties/format, then you'll end up as a said in my answer section.

I have a seperate partion on which I keep all my personal files. e.g. My Documents. I find this useful because I keep experimenting and often end up making a mess of my C drive. This means I can reformat/reinstall my operating system on C: and still have all my personal work files saved on D: under windows, or /home directory under linux.
