    Ok, dumb question.
    How do I get rid of everything to start from scratch? Just reboot from the OSX disc and reinstall the OS?

    bump on a log in a hole in the bottom of the sea
    Boot from the DVD by holding c while powering on the computer. And under utilities use "disk utility" to wipe everything.
