Generally, if it's adjacent to the windows partition you can merge them. If it's not next to the windows partition, then I'd discourage it and suggest that you just format it and give it another drive letter.
The reason for not merging non-adjacent partitions is that it requires many steps from partition magic to complete. And each step introduces the opportunity for errors to occur. It's been my experience in the past that operations such as this will corrupt data - so I recommend against it.
