[ubuntu-uk] Removing XP partition

I'm ready to remove my old XP partition - I need the space to extend my
Ubuntu backup.

I have two drives, XP and Ubuntu backup is on one, and Ubuntu root,
home, swap is on the other. These drives are quite old, only 30Gb each.

In Gparted, the XP partition is flagged as boot, lba - if I just delete
it, will this cause a boot (or GRUB) problem?

My plan once I've done a new backup is to move /swap to the backup
drive, and have root and /home on the other drive.
