    I spent a while googling this, but found nothing.

    It just now occurred to me that i could:
    1) slave the drive in a win (or nix) pc
    2) reformat to respective filesystem
    3) then wipe using that filesystem's "eraser" app.

    system is g3, 10gb ata hdd.

    If this doesn't work (?!), then I'll post/edit this thread. Otherwise, maybe someone in future will find this "solution" useful.

    You could just boot from a Linux live CD and erase it. From there, you'll have many more options if you want to securely erase it or not.
