Hi Folks
I have replaced my 2.16GHz 20" iMac but before I dispose of it I want to ensure that any data, especially of a confidential nature is cleared from the hard drive. In simple terms, how do I go about this please?

(I hope this is in the correct topic box.)
imac 27* 2.8 GHz Intel Quad Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
