Wait um I downloaded DOD from www.download.com and it does something similar to KillDisk. What do you mean by 'Most hard drive manufacturers have this for download' and by the way I just copied the iso. file to a CD!

Most hard drive manufacturers have a disc utility which you can use to write zeros to the drive, removing all data and files

I would go with the Manufacturers utility if you are going to format, then set the partitions as part of installing XP

OR

Are you wanting to add partitions to an existing install you want to keep
