Go to:

download the .iso image and burn it to a CD, then boot from the CD.

It's pretty self-explanatory.

Thank you for your help: Also, thank you Jim:

I have DL the file and processed the ISO file to CD. I thought there may be some type of read me file with some helpful details but evidently all details are in the "Actual" execution stage for the "wipe operation" -- is this correct.

Also, can this software be used to wipe ONLY one partition of a drive with more than one Partition.

Another post by Jim referred to software that would need to disconnect ALL other drives and I assume it just wipes ALL hard drives that it finds on the computer -- which I don't want to get into this type of operation. Also, even though I have been in computers since 1952, I know nothing regarding Linux so would prefer to NOT use the Linux that Jim also referred to.
Your comments will be appreciated.
