Partitioning advice on Inspiron 1525

I have an Inspiron 1525 with Vista, and would like to install Windows 7 as a dual OS.  All 4 partitions are currently taken, and are described as:

Volume Layout Type File Sys Status Capacity Free Space % Free
  Simple Basic   Healthy (EISA Configuration) 71 MB 71 MB 100%
  Simple Basic   Healthy (Primary Partition) 2.5 GB 2.5 GB 100%
OS (CSmiley Happy Simple Basic NTFS Health (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) 220.32 GB 152.23 GB 69%
Recovery (DSmiley Happy Simple Basic NTFS Healthy (Primary Partition) 10.00 GB 4.85 GB 48%

I am a novice at partitions.  Which of the first 2 partitions (which seem to be at the beginning and the end of the harddrive) can I safely delete, so that I can then shrink C:, and create a new partition for Windows 7?
