    There was an equivalent to Disk Utility in OS 9. It would be on the OS 9 install CD. Depending on the vintage, it might also be able to boot to OS-X.

    Basically, it doesn't matter which method, you just need to boot off another volume and erase the partition.

    yeah if you have a tiger install disk boot from it then use the disk utility on it to wipe the internal drive
