just a couple of quick questions.

this one is about the options that dban asks, below is the info that is shown on the second page of dban.

[ ] (IDE 0,0,0,-,-) SAMSUNG SV0802N
[ ] (IDE 0,0,0,-,1) Partition
[ ] (IDE 0,0,0,-,2) Partition

do you know if im right in saying the top one is the HD as i want to wipe the whole HD.
will selecting the top one also wipe the two partitions?

for me this question is just as important as the last one.

do you know if i need (or advisible) to remove any hardware like the modem that is connected to the USB..ect

imput is appreciated
