    GParted is a free open source linux tool which can do it in a snap. You can download it as it's own Live CD, or as part of the Ubuntu Live CD. It's a good fall back when the Vista partition manager doesn't work.

    it's impossible to merge partitions. u have to reformat and delete one, and use the unallocated space to extend the other. the built in vista one does fine.
