once you delete a second partition on your hard drive and there is only blank space how do you enlarge the original "Macintosh HD" to cover the entire hard drive space?

I just delete a partition on my drive and wanted to 1 either enlarge my original partition to cover the entire space, or 2 create a new partition in the free space. The problem is when I attempt to drag down the Macintosh HD partition and hit apply nothing happens. When i try to partition the free space (80 gigs) I hit apply and the new partition is only 200 mb with the 79 gigs still free space... HELP PLEASE.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
