ok what you do is connect the hard drive as a slave drive to another computer, and then when it appears in my computer, right click it and click format.
I wouldnt do it that way, there is still a chance of infecting his primary drive.
Set the infected drive as the ONLY
drive on the system.
and then format it by booting to floppy or CD rom or whatever tool you plan on formatting the drive with.
for example win XP bootable CD
boot to CD, then select the 40Gig and format it.
