What am I supposed to do when donating my old computer?

Apple Computer Techretrobleu asked:

I’m donating my old computer, Apple, Mac G4… What am I supposed to do to clean the hard drive?, use the “software restore” disk? Not very tech savvy, please help.

    Boot from the original OSX install CD’s ( by pressing ‘C’ during boot-up) and reformat the drive with the disk utility. follow the instructions on this site for disk utility.

    Then, reinstall OSX, and you’re good to go.
