deleting ubuntu partition and reassigning unallocated

I realize this is more a gparted concern, but am having a user name problem and not getting in to their forum.
My spouse is reaching a critical space issue in XP and needs to recapture the assigned Ubuntu space to windows.
I can delete it easy enough with gparted live CD, but am lost with reassigning unallocated.
Please advise and thanks
