    The wipe will be done as part of the Linux installation.

    So you’ll want to pick the Linux distribution you want to install, create the install DVD, boot your computer from that DVD and then follow the on screen instructions.

    Assuming you’re totally new to this, you probably want to go with http://www.ubuntu.com/ as your distribution of choice, as it is very user friendly and probably one of the easiest to install and get running.

    See their website for details on setup and install.
