How large are the partitions? What is on D: and do you need to save it? Is D: your recovery partition with the Vista installation files?

Did you misstate the size of the C and D partitions? If not, do yourself a big favor and get a larger hard drive and clone your system over.

Otherwise I'm assuming your C and D drive are two partitions on the same hard drive? If so and if D is to the right of C as viewed in Disk Management, you should be able to delete the D volume (right click, delete volume) if there are no system files on it and then Extend the C volume into the space reclaimed by deleting the D volume.
