Acer Aspire 3500 Laptop - Can I delete a Partition and increase main Drive Partition

I have a clients Acer Aspire 3500 laptop running Windows XP on it.  Acer in their wisdom (I don't like how they do it) partition their drives half and half, thereofre this laptop has 2-30GB drives, rather than just one 60GB drive.
Is there a way that I can easily delete the ACERDATA Drive and add that space to the main C Drive of the machine?
I know you can do it in Vista but can not find it in XP

ACERDATA partition is usually used for an eventual restoration of drivers, system files etc..
If you want to delete it I advise you to do before an image of your operating system, with Ghost or Acronis and then delete the partition.
After deleting the partition you can use the tools to resize / moving partition with free software like

That partition usually contains Windows XP setup files.
So you must first burn this files to CD/DVD.
