Collecting an (old!) computer to give to a friend, but need to clean and reformat it first.

Anyone direct me to a site with good, step by step instructions on how to do this?

click here - one of hte best.

click here for W98.

Rule 1, Do all preparation before starting and make sure everything is easily to hand, searching out certificates and driver disks mid reformat is a total pain in the rear.
