Restoring partitioned disk to one partition

I have a PC that the previous owner partitioned the hard drive into two (and installed an operating system on each). It's come to time when I need to reinstall XP, and I want to revert to a single partition. Can I do that as and when I install XP? From memory, the XP install routine just allows you to format the partition on which you want to install the OS. I think I have a copy of Partition Magic lying around, so perhaps I'd do better to install XP on the current C partition, then delete whatever's on D, then use PM to repartition it into one. Anyone have any guidance as to the best way forward?

I did read that you could go into msconfig,Boot.and remove one of the operating systems,Whether that would also remove the partition I have my doubts.
