If you don't need to install Win98, you can delete everything by creating a Windows 98 boot disk: found here: http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

Then, boot to the floppy disk and use FDISK to reformat the hard drive. Instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/255867

Keep in mind, that if you have any financial information AND you are concerned that the receiver will attempt to recover it, they may be able to do this. You could use this tool instead: http://www.killdisk.com/ which will prevent the data from being recovered.
