i need to be certain old data is removed from a Gateway 2000 so it can be given to some children for the upcoming school year. the data must not be retrievable even by experts, like you. i know to 1)boot disk, 2)fdisk, choose option to 3)delete partitions, then 4) add partitions. i've been told i'll need a CD-ROM DOS driver and will need to know how to load it. i don't even know what it is. how do i get one, how do i use it, what's it for, and is there any way around using it? thanks.
