Something went horribly, horribly wrong when I attempted to install win xp on my imac. I now cant even boot from a live linux disc. I also cannot install osx again, because it says my hard drive is "failing" (its about 10 months old, I had the machine open a few months ago though and thats when it started saying that, despite anything being wrong.) I need some type of terminal command that will allow me to wipe whatever it is that is on my hard drive because disk utility wont let me (due to the "failing" status).


EDIT: booted from and MSDOS disk, problem solved
QUOTE Thanks
