    I recently Purchased a used Macbook Pro, I It has OS X I bought Snow Lepard today.
    I am a new Mac user and want to "wipe" and start over, like i said i purchased the latest version.
    I don't have any of his DVD's for original OS
    Is it possible to erase this hard drive and install fresh
    I have no clue how to do this if possible
    Thanks

    Just boot into your new Snow Leopard DVD by holding 'C' during boot. Then open up the top menu: Utilities—>Disk Utility. Select the HDD partition and choose the Erase tab; then erase it.

    Exit Disk Utility and follow the instructions to install OS X.
