This should clear up some confusion. Will it ?

Disk Wiping One Pass Is Enough

What about magnetic force microscopy?
Sans Computer Forensics on Magnetic Force Microscopy
Secure Deletion of Data from Magnetic and Solid-State Memory 
by Peter Gutmann (35 pass wipe originated from Mr. Gutmann)

So why are there so many recommendations for multiple passes during disk 
"Another method I use quite a bit is to just hook a drive up to a Linux system
or pop a bootable Live CD in the machine and boot into a Linux environment to
use the "DD" command. It can be as simple as this:
  dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/[DISK HERE]

Enjoy it !
