The Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) has a lot of utilities for checking RAM and
Disks, wiping Disks, formatting, etc.

Any Linux Live CD like Knoppix or Ubuntu will also tools to do what you
need. If you go with the Live CD of your installed Distro, you can probably
do everything you want including re-install, all from the same CD.
