I want to wipe a harddisk using Knoppix. I have a Vista instillation
refuses to boot no matter what I do to it, even tried accessing it using
an XP boot CD but that just hangs on boot.
So I have backed up every thing to my XP disk.
Now I need a good lowlevel command to wipe the darn thing.
I used the Ultimate Boot Disk in the end.
Got Vista installed again as well as XP, all I need it a third hard drive
bay for my Fedora HD to fit in.
FWIW - it really is not necessary to put everything on separate disks. I
have six distros on one drive.
I feel safer that way and can always swap them from machine to machine
