Yep, there was an option in DOS to wipe the drive, then it disappeared until Vista was released. I use DBAN (Darrick's Boot And Nuke) on older systems.
Change dump file size:
<Advanced><Startup and Recovery>
<Write Debugging Information>
The options are:
Small Memory Dump (64KB)
Kernel Memory Dump
Complete Memory Dump

If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

Correct. Not only during the install though. The format option when Windows XP is booted does the same thing, it does NOT wipe the drive.
