    The guy who sold the computer to me didn't wipe any of his data from the computer. I have all of the original discs and such. What is the best way to "wipe" the computer and start like it came right out of the box?

    Thanks

    Boot up the OS CD and follow the instructions.

    If you want extra piece of mind, after you boot off the cd, click disk utility on the top menu bar and do a zero out data pass...writes the whole drive w/ zeros. one pass should be good enough ;)
