I want to erase my brand new hard drive, remove it and sell it from my Powerbook G4. I am unable to erase the hard drive, why?

I go to disk utility, pick the drive (232.9 GB WDC2500...) click on 'erase" BUT I can't advance any further then that BECAUSE: the VOLUME FORMATis grayed out and not active., & the SECURITY OPTIONS button is also grayed out and not active.

How do I make these items active so that I can erase my hard drive?

Powerbook G4 15", Mac OS X (10.5.8)
