Reclaiming Windows partition for SUSE

I've got a laptop with a 60GB drive divided 50/50 between SUSE 9.3 and
WinXP. I'd like to reclaim the the 30GB WinXP partition and use the
60GB drive exclusively for SUSE (making a 30GB /data partition).

What would be the easiest way to do this? I've got Partiion Magic 7
with which I thought I might nuke the WinXP partition. Or is doing
this in Linux better. The current SUSE partitions are ReiserFS so I
thought I'd do the same with this new partition.

I have a ton of data on the SUSE side and I could backup and do a
complete reinstall, but this would be a last resort.

Thanks for tips.
