    I will try to answer your question, though I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do.
    If you want to have just one big partition --- in other words, No partitions, just the plain hard drive with all the space available, all you have to do is delete the other partitions. You would have to reinstall Linux, I think, but you said the software doesn't matter. I would delete and then reformat and reinstall.

    Somehow I think I have not understood you clearly. What exactly are you going to do this for? Is there an operating system you want to keep? Can you reinstall?
