Too many people to thank who replied....

In the end I used the Sun blueprint with the method by Christoper Manly for now

other suggestions were... from David Magda from Bernd Schemmer

BC Wipe as I had already found and recommended by James Ray

Ryan Anderson suggested creating a bootable CD which I will most certainly look to do, and someone suggested creating a diskless boot, which again sounds better.

The usual dd /dev/zero for a quick wipe, but the only way to make 100% sure is crushing!! a little drastic in this case.

Thanks to all and those I didn't mention
