You need to do this in DOS. Here's some info on making old HDDs secure, and the data unrecoverable:
Whether you need to go that far depends on who you're giving it to - if it's someone you trust, with average PC skills like most of us, a format is probably OK. If it's possible that it might end up with an expert, you'll need to take te advice from that link.
Are you using Win98?
