So I decided to try to see if my old MacBook Pro worked (it hadn't been working for a long time, so I got a new one). It seems to be working, but I want to wipe it clean, so I can either sell it or give it to my dad who wants one.

My question is, how do I wipe the MacBook completely clean? I don't have the installation CD that came with it, so is there another way?
QUOTE Thanks
