    I am getting squared away to leave my current job (and my G5) behind. Thing is, I want to leave the computer as if it were new out of the box for the next guy. I do have the original OS X Install disks. I just don't know what to do.

    Just throw the install disk in and I believe it gives you an option for a clean re-install.

    Sorry to hear you're leaving such a great machine behind.

    For added safety, you could try to zero out the disks. This prevents anyone who uses the computer after you to retrive any data.
