Yes Chuck, Partition Magic or other similar partition managers should let you do what you want, but with certain restrictions. You can merge physically-adjacent partitions, but not non-adjacent partitions. All the data in the merging partition will appear in a folder within the final merged partition (this is necessary to prevent conflicts if there are duplicate file names in the two partitions).
You could possibly simulate merging non-adjacent partitions by judiciously deleting, moving, and resizing. However, the existing partition sizes must be such that the move could be accomplished. Also, some data would be lost so you must first save the data, and then restore it later. Actually, this latter is not such a big deal because anytime you start messing with partitions, you should first backup your entire drive anyway.
Hope this helps
