There are a couple of ways of doing this without losing data. One is to use Partition Magic (or similar), which you have to pay for, the other is to use a freeware (open source) utility. An example of one of these is NTFS Resizer (I'm assuming your drive is formatted with NTFS but you had better check first). You can download NTFS Resizer from this link :
WARNING : I haven't personally used this utility & therefore cannot vouch for it's safety or effectiveness. If you have any drive imaging software for backing up your partitions first, then I strongly advise you do so.

The other method you could use is the reverse of this - i.e Convert the smaller partition to NTFS first, then merge it with the larger partition.
Either of the two utilities I mentioned should be able to cope with this. The conversion from FAT32 to NTFS however, can be performed by XP's disk management utility.
