Merge or Delete Partition witn Windows 7 Install?

I will be upgrading my Vista-64 bit OS to Windows 7 when I get my pre-ordered copy in late October. The laptop currently has an used partition to the left of the Vista OS partition (as seen by Disk Management). When I install Windows 7 will I be able to delete and/or merge those two partitions?

yes delete, yes merge. either or. Once you have win 7 installed and working you are going to want to delete the vista partition.
