+1 wipe; I have used it to wipe an entire block device.
Also wipe2fs for zeroing unused space; and zerofree seems very similar.

Do you have an example of what your wipe and wipe2fs commands are that you've used?  Didn't see much info on the websites here http://wipe.sourceforge.net/ or here http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~cklin/wipe2fs/.  Would like to learn.
