One way to do this is to delete the XP partition , create a new ext3 partition and mount it as , say /data in the current Ubuntu Root FS.

jt-Can't you simply use gparted to extend the partition once you nuke XP?

If XP was the firat partition on your disk, I'm not sure if you can extend the partition on your left ?

Ack! You're right. Your entire filesystem is rooted at sector 0. So if
you extended it left, nothing would be where you expected it.
