    it's easy. once you install new one. then start mac. insert DVD which comes with your mac. after screen shows as install mac os x, go to disk utility. you will see 5 different options when you choose hard drive. in order to format, click erase. then start format. that's all. in my case I usually choose 'writing to zero' for fresh installment. :)
