What is the best (easiest) way to overwrite old harddisks with random

Have a look at shred - 'man shred' will explain how to use it...

If you are to toss the drive: Use a 10 mm drill .
Just make a couple of holes thru the whole case and you are done.
Fast, secure and cheep...

I've done that procedure at work where a bank left some workstations to be
disposed of.
A nice 10 mm drill, redecorate the case to resemble a swiss cheese.. and
Nothing is getting of THAT drive in a hurry...

It's more fun to set the hdd up on a fence or rock and target practice on it with a Colt .45 or .223 rifle.

Yes, that is very nice.. ;)
