Like the title says
Boot from the install disc supplied with your Mac and use Disk Utility to securely erase the drive.
You can use the OS X install disc to boot... go to disk utilities and chose the erase level you want...
What if you dont have the install disc ?
Not as easy then. You would have to clone your current drive to an external, then boot from that in order to erase your internal drive. You can't erase the volume you are currently running an OS from.
Or you can download the Ubuntu Live CD (free) and use that:
if you have a second mac you can use target mode on the mac you want to erase. Hold T on startup and your mac will act like a firewire drive.
Does DBAN work ?
