I was just wonderng how you go about getting rid of it

My friend used partition magic? I think to make the partition

BY the way, the main hard drive has 30 gb. and xp
secondary has 2k and 10 gb.

This is a temporary fix, there are better solutions..but a quick way.
First....on the main OS..
Control Panel> System Icon> Advanced Tab> Startup and Recovery Button> Uncheck "Time to display list of operating systems:" ... from the drop down list select the main OS..hit ok ok ok till you're at the desktop.. format the partition w/ the other os on it.. the boot info for the other OS will be in the main OS..but it'll never show so it'll be gone.. your BETTER solution is to wipe both drives and start from scratch but that will not hurt anything (the method above..)
