Hello glengrt...

Darik's Boot and Nuke will write the drive to zeroes. To be doubly sure, run it twice. Oh....and it's free.

Did you burn the disk as an ISO Image? This is different than burning a data cd. If you don't have a burning program capable of burning ISO images, you can use ISO Recorder...it will add "Copy Image to CD" to your "right-click" menu. Download and install the version for the machine you will create the disk on...then simply right click on the downloaded ISO image file and choose "Copy Image to CD" to start the ISO Recorder application. You should be able to burn it using default settings.

I could have been a little clearer on which file to download, too. You'll want This Version. (Direct Download)
