Run the Boot Camp Assistant again and tell it to reclaim the space.

Alrighty. Assuming you have 10.5.x, you can use Disk Utility to merge the partitions non-destructively back into one partition. Nonetheless, you should have a backup in place... just in case. If you are still on 10.4 and using some trick to fool Boot Camp beta into thinking it hasn't expired, then you need a 3rd-party solution like iPartition.
