I'm running Leopard on first gen Intel iMac. I've got an extra hd partition called "disk0s3", which is a boot camp partition (from OS X 10.4.2). I want to get rid of the partition. How?

I've tried:

-*Boot Camp*, doesn't work says "startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition"
-*Disk Utility*, I don't know how to delete a partition with it!)
-*iPartition 3.0*, option "delete partition" is not available (I have the FULL version of iPartition)

So what's left to try? Target Mode?
I'm a mac newbie. Any ideas appreciated!

PS: I can't boot to a Leopard DVD with the usual "c"-press technique...I don't know what's up with that.
