link an existing gamertag to my xbox live account

i have had my xbox for a while, and thus a bit of gaming history on the console. in preparation for (finally) running the cable to hook up my xbox to Live, i set up my Live account online. how do i link my existing gamertag to my xboxlive account? when i tried to log in, i was told that the gamertag was linked to another account. any ideas?

If you made 2 different gamertags, there's no way to merge them.

You cannot merge two different gamertags.

You can however change the email address on the dummy account and this will free it up to use on your main gamertag.
