Easiest and quickest, while being the dirtiest way, is to just use FDisk under windows, open a command prompt and type fdisk. Delete the linux partition and create a new partition, NTFS if you have the option to format it, otherwise wait to do so using the windows formatting utility.
That will give you what appears to be another HD to use as you need, to make it into part of the Windows Partition you will need a better Disk Partitioning utility, disk druid is on your linux disk probably and can probably do it, but I am not sure. Partition magic is another one that you have to pay for though.
The real catch will be the bootloader is you chose to install that on the MBR and want to remove it. It should work just fine if you just choose windows every time, otherwise I believe you will need the windows install CD, and there is an option somewhere on it I tihnk to 'repair MBR'. Someone more familiar with windows will have to fill in my blanks on that, but anyways that should rebuild the windows MBR.
