Getting Ibook back to original settings
I am most likely selling my ibook g4 in the next couple days, so does anyone know how to get it back to the settings it had when i first got it, and to erase all of the current data off the hard drive thanks.
Ibook g4 12" 1.33ghz

Do a clean install. And choose to format the disk with 8 way random overwrite (or whatever it's called) - I cannot remember if this is an option after you've chosen install type or if you have to run disk utility from the tools menu in the installer, but you probably find it...
This erases EVERYTHING form the disk before you install Panther or Tiger again, and leave no (or really very little, but don't get concerned over it) trace of anything you had on it.
Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it; those who fail to learn history correctly... why, they are simply doomed.
