If you don't have the system discs, you probably shouldn't give it away in its current state. No one but the pimple-faced kid next door will work on the machine without the system discs, or they'll charge you to replace them. Wipe it clean and give the person a better OS.

If you have credit card info, etc. on it you should be careful handing it over to someone else even after you wipe the drive.

I've pulled stuff off of drives that people thought were safe.
