Resize partition on RAID5 array

Hi,
I have a Windows 2000 file server which has a 100GB RAID array attached. This array is seen by Win2k Disk Management as "Disk2 - Basic - 101.24 GB", which is partitioned into 2 logical drives - D: which is 67GB and E which is 33GB. I am planning to move all the data from E: to a new file server and I would then like to remove the E: partition and create a single 100GB partition for D: but I am not sure of the best approach.
I am thinking that after E: has been deleted (and for some reason E: is on the first part of the disk, in front of D:) I can upgrade the disk to Dynamic and resize the partition that way. Alternatively, I thought about using PowerQuest VolumeManager to do the job, though I would rather use Windows.
I'm sure that this is a simple enough procedure given that this is not a system drive, but I would like to do this with the minumum risk of screwing the whole thing up and having to restore data.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

PowerQuest's Volume Manager is all I would trust for this job on a server and on HW RAID.

This is NOT a trivial job so don't trust any other partition managers on a server - trust me on this one!

Hope this helps.
