I am looking for a free, preferably GUI style, piece of software that will allow me to safely merge two partitions on server 2003 machine. Which software would you recommend? Thanks.

GParted or Parted Magic. But I will not recommend to this on a production Server!
Parted Magic should work.  I would make sure you have a full backup of the server just in case the partition becomes corrupt or damaged.
I wouldn't advise this on a production server either. Make sure you make up everything before attempting this. My recommendations: gparted and Partition Magic as well.

Are these partitions data partitions? Or is system partition involved? If no system partition involved them simply cop out data - dele partitions and recreate the single partition to copy then data back to it.
If system partition is involved into merge then take screen shot of windows disk management and post it here. I will give the best walkthrough you can have.
