formating linux hard drive on dell mini 9 with Ubuntu 8
Anyone know how to format/erase a hard drive from a linux system? I want to give away or recycle my old dell mini but need to wipe the drive clean before I do that. Boot and Nuke didn't work from the new optical drive I used. It began but then gave me an error message about the optical drive. Maybe the mini's bios is too old for the optical drive.
