    Assuming here all three machines will run Snow Leopard and also assuming you have the retail Snow Leopard disk (not the grey one that comes with a new Mac)... you can hold the C key when booting to boot to the Snow Leopard disk. Once booted to the SL disk, start Disk Utility and select the drive brand name at the very top above Macintosh HD and erase the disk to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format. Then quit Disk Utility and click install OS.
