Firstly...you need to be more flexible with the terminology. "System Tools" & "Disk Tools" are the same thing (Disk Tools are System Tools). We're talking about 20+ year-old terminology...so my memory is a bit "fuzzy".

If the "Disk Tools" disk is not "bootable"...then you need to:

- "boot" the computer from the whatever disk you have that is bootable
- then eject that disk
- insert the "Disk Tools" disk
- launch the "Disk Tools" application (or whatever it's called) to erase the HD

If the "Disk Tools' disk is bootable...then things are easy...and you just need to launch the "Disk Tools" application to erase the HD.

HTH,
