There sure is. I always use SeaGate's "Disc Wizard Starter Edition." It will write zero's to the entire drive, permanately deleting any previous data. You can download it here: CLICK ME
Also, if you need to check the disc for bad sectors, you can also download SeaTools at the same website.
I've used it literally hundreds of times, and it always works perfect. Hope that helps. *EDIT*
Additionally, if you want a boot disc that has every DOS tool under the sun on it, I would recommend the Ultimate Boot CD. You can download it here: CLICK ME
It also has Disk Wizard on it as well.
