    DBAN will wipe the whole disk for you.

    OR boot up mandriva, gain 'root' ( su ) privileges and execute this in terminal
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=521 count=1
    if Mandriva is installed in SATA harddisk, replace hda with 'sda'.
    everything will be gone on reboot and your harddisk will be blank like brand new one.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
