I'm looking to completely wipe the contents of my laptop hard drive. Like completely completely so I can install a new OS. It's a crappy old thing with like 1024MB RAM with a 1600mhz processor and not even 60GB hard drive. I can't go and wipe anything because even though I own the laptop outright and wholly I somehow don't have administrators privilages. I called the help-line and they haven't done squat. Any help appreaciated, and I'm also looking to install something different to windows, but I've no experience whatsoever with linux type stuff. Hackint0sh isn't too appealing either. If i wanted a mac I'd get one. thanks!!
