    I'm selling my ibook but I want to permately erase some sensitive data. I don't want to just delete the files to the trash and then empty it. Some bits of the data might be in the hard drive. Is there a program I can purchase that can permately erase the data files or programs so when the person who buys my ibook can find the data.

    Duff-Man says...boot from your OS X CD, launch disk utility....in the "initialize drive" or "format" section you can "zero" the drive as you reformat....no need really to spend any money.....oh yeah!
