I haven't done this but I think you can just use Disk Utilities in the Utilities folder in the applications folder. And reformat your Hard Drive, it can rewrite everything to zero or you can do some higher security rewrites of the drive. And then you would need the install disks to re install OSX. Hope this helps, I don't know if this is the best way but just an option. Should be info about reinstalling the OS on the Apple website.

I found the following page and it describes how to use the OS X install disc to reset to factory setting. Good Luck
