DBAN is discussed often in these forums but BEWARE IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS. It may erase all drives attached to the machines. Another is ERASER at http://eraser.heidi.ie/ which I have yet to bother with since I'll just use old DBAN.
With DBAN some owners may claim it destroyed their hard drive. What I found was the owner didn't know how to create a partition after DBAN was used.
