[Dshield] secure erasing

I've used gdisk, which comes with Norton Ghost for wiping drives.

It's a command line utility that gives several options up to wiping to full
DoD spec.

You can download a trial version of Ghost from the Symantec site.  Hopefully
gdisk will come with it.

Happy erasing!  ;)

Subject: [Dshield] secure erasing

I'm going to be donating some workstations to a local charity and want
to erase the hard drives.  I did a little digging and found
http://www.tolvanen.com/eraser/ .  Has anyone tried this util?  Are
there any other recommendations?  We're not talking high level security
items on any of the disks, I'd just like to make sure they're clean.

Thanx, Paul
