Hard drive partition issues

hi everybody!

new to the forums having a little issue i was given a samsung N145 notebook for christmas and in my haste to play with it i rushed through the initial setup. didnt realize it till today somehow the space that was allocated for the recoevery partition has been labelled as C: and the huge amount of space left of the 160gb hd is now free space as ive already gone into the disk management thing to get rid of the partition. now my problem is how do i reintegrate that free space back into C: without wiping the whole thing out. to complicate matters I'm a pretty big newb when it comes to this stuff my last laptop was from 04 and finally died a month ago, also the notebook has no optical drive im kinda lost any help would be appreciated

cheers
