I got a new MacBook last Friday during the sale and I want to sell my iBook G4 running 10.3.9. What should I do to erase my personal info on the iBook?

I also don't want Firefox and Safai auto-logging the new owner onto sites like, showing past searches on Google and past URLs when they start to type one in. How do I erase those?
QUOTE Thanks

do an erase and install using the install disks you got with your iBook, that will erase everything off.

It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world.
