I have a 17" iMac 1.83 GHz that I am selling but I want to reset it to its original factory settings. So far, I haven't found out how.

What I have done so far:
Erased all my files (that I could find)
Did a 7-time erase on all deleted files,
then a Zero Out erase on all deleted files.
I removed all programs I installed.

The problem is, I am still shown as the ADMIN and my password is set and I want to know if I can reset it all the way back to the original place, so the new owner has to go through the first start up process. I have both original start up disks 1 and 2. Can someone please talk me through how to get this all done?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
