How to Securely Wipe a Hard Disk with "Darik's Boot and Nuke"

A few things to mention:
You can put DBAN on a USB key, but warning, if you use "autonuke", it will nuke all hard drives, including the USB. So when you get to the blue screen with text at the bottom saying that it recognized a USB drive, pull it out. DBAN is fully loaded.
To put DBAN on a USB, you just download the original ISO (currently at version 2.2.7). With my experience, many ISO writers do not work, and LinuxLive has worked wonders for me. It works with Ubuntu, Ophcrack, DBAN, Linux, and many others.
Please add this to the tutorial, because it is very useful for people with computers without DVD/CD drives.
