Use Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") to format. The easiest option is to type autonuke.

Also if you whant to erase files when you have already reinstalled an OS you can use CCleaner (from http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard ) -> Tools -> Drive Wiper -> Wipe: Free space only. It supports different erase algorithms used by US government agencies.
