Would someone please throw out a URL and suggestions for free Windows XP,
hard drive wiping utility's?  Something that will wipe a drive to a
machine that's going to be donated or thrown away?   

Preferably something thorough?

There is no silver bullet.  If the drive doesn't need to be used again,
hand it over to your nearest machine shop for destruction.  If you plan
for it to be used again, can the data on it *truly* be that secure?  ;-)
