Same here.  Being a Pinciple (Senior) Electrical Engineer and IT "geek, guru, & rocket scientist" I've always used and recommended dban. It is a stand alone linux self boot cd that needs an x86 cpu.  It is OS independent of any hard drive.   In a multiple drive system one does need to be sure they have selected the correct drive to nuke.

Dban work great for me. http://www.dban.org/

It's free and is capable of a DoD spec wipe. And if all you have is 40 megs to clean, we're not talking hours.
