He wants to install Ubuntu. To do this, he wants to get rid of his D:
partition. Until he does that, he can't install Parted, so that
suggestion is really not much help, is it?

You did not suggest that he boot the LiveCD and run Parted from there,
which would have been rather more use. However, in Linux, it can be
rather hard to tell which drive is C: and which is D:. That is why I
suggested using Windows to remove the partition.
