And I'm really beginning to like OSX(86), much better than Windows, so I would maybe like to delete the partition and add the extra space to my OSX86 partition! Is that possible?

Only you'll have to do it from the command line.
Go here for a little walkthrough in how it works.
Basically, just find out what the terminal name for your hard drive is (probably something like disk1s0) and then find the maximum it can hold (you want the exact number!)
do this by typing "diskutil resizeVolume <DISK NAME GOES HERE> limits"
then i'm assuming you would just type "diskutil resizeVolume <DISK NAME GOES HERE> <MAX SIZE GOES HERE>bytes"
go ahead and play around with it. I doubt any damage will be doe, so long as you don't try making it smaller than the amount of data there actualy is on the disk!
You should have it going in no time, post back if you have any problems!
 i think this is only for GUID Partition Table disks as used on the intel macs. If mac was working for me, i'd confirm. Anyone know for sure?

I've been deleting your spam about this on the forum, aside from this post. Do not continue to do this... (Also, no one reply to me here, please, I just want to make it on the record)
If you're not trying to dual boot and you're getting the HFS+ partition error message, than I have an easy fix. Get to a terminal and type "sudo fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0" To get the the terminal you can either boot with an OSX86 install disc (like Jas or goatsecx) and wait for it to timeout (boot your install) or enter single user mode. Once you've executed the command it will ask you to confirm the operation. Answer yes and you should have no trouble next time you boot.
As for HFS+ resizing, you could have used search... I think the easiest way to resize it is to get the latest Knoppix LiveCD and run qtparted from it. It can resize HFS+, NTFS, etc.

I'm pretty sure it works the other way around too! Just erase your Windows partition and then resize your OS X system partition.
