I originally had Snow Leopard and a Bootcamp partition running XP on my internal hard drive.  When Lion came out, I decided to install it on a new partition rather than installing it over Snow Leopard.  So I used the dynamic partitioning process while in Snow Leopard to create a 3rd partition and installed Lion on the new partition.   Now I can't book into XP.  My understanding is that a Bootcamp partition will only work if there is only 1 other partition on the hard drive.  So now I'd like to delete the Bootcamp partition. 


I used Lion almost exclusively.  If I go into Bootcamp Assistant while in Lion and delete the Bootcamp partition, will that space on my hard drive automatically be reformatted and will my Lion partition get that space?  If not, what happens to that space on my hard drive?


Thanks in advance for any help with this.
