Once upon a time I thought it was a good idea to partition the drive in this PPC iMac into a couple pieces. Now I want to undo this and make one big partition.
It would be great if I could just resize the startup partition, but I guess you can only make them smaller. So... I have TM running on a 500G drive and I've cleaned out my second partition, I've also got a CCC clone on a separate TB drive... but I'm not sure I did it right. I was looking ahead to putting TM from other Intel Mac's on that drive so I partitioned it with GUID. Now (I think) I can't boot from the CCC Clone on that drive. Should I start over... partition that with and Apple Partition Map and then I could boot from there.
Or is there an easier way?
Oh... I suppose I could reinstall the OS from DVD and let TM redo the machine? Which is better and why?

If I understand you correctly, and a couple of assumptions are also correct, it may be very easy.
Open Disk Utility, select the top line of the drive (with the make and size), and click the Partition tab.
Is your boot (OSX) volume on top?
And you don't need anything in the "other" partition, that's below the OSX volume?
If so, all you need to do is select the "other" partition. It will be outlined in blue. Click the minus sign at the bottom to delete it, then Apply and confirm.
Once that's done, just pull the lower-right corner of the OSX partition all the way to the bottom, click Apply, and confirm.
