    What is the best way to wipe a hard drive clean? I am selling a machine and need to give it to him clean.
    Thanks

    Duff-Man says....boot from your OS X CD. Launch Disk Utility. Choose "erase disk" then go into "options..." - from there you can "zero all data" or over-write the drive multiple times.....oh yeah!
