I have an iMac that I have sold and would like to wipe it clean, for my security, and to allow the new owner to start from scratch as if he purchased the computer new.  I purchased the computer with an older OS (10.5.4), but through the process have upgraded to Snow Leopard, and am currently running 10.6.8.  I have the start up discs from the origional purchase as well as Snow Leopard (10.6.3).  I would appreciate some clear guidance on how to make this happen.



iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 2.66 Core 2 duo, 4 GB 800 MHz DDR2
