Several questions come to mind. Is this configured as a RAID Machine? And since you say FAT32 this is not an XP related question. XP uses the NTFS file system. What is on the other partition? Is your restore configuration on it?

You can remove a partition using XP Pro, But be advised removing a partition deletes any data that "was" on it. Here is a link to the MS Learning & Reference site that covers what you want to do.
