Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.
Hope this helps

RoadKill's Utility works great

This method does delete your data, it overwrites it with Zero's. (Called Zero Fill)

If you were to do this 10 times it would be to DOD standards (I Think)

Along with DBAN, I would recommend Active KillDisk: http://www.killdisk.com/
