Is there a Disc Formatter out there that i can boot into using a CD and format my Harddrive.

I know i could use fedora CD but i was wondering if there is one out there that will make sure the data is actually gone and not just there links.

Note that formatting the drive will not erase the data, it will only make it harder to access. If you want to completely erase personal data, see e.g. superuser.com/questions/4678/… –  sleske Sep 6 '10 at 8:39

Dariks Boot and Nuke will format the hard drive for you and has a bootable ISO download. If your looking for a partition manager then I suggest Gparted
