[clug] Wiping a (running) system...

We've had plenty of talk about how to wipe a disk but I am in the
situation where I want/need to wipe a remote system as much as
possible.  I can't really get physical access to the system but can
SSH to it now.  I can remove all the data from the data partitions no
sweat but the root disk is more interesting...

Is there some way to loading a currently running system into a ram
disk or something and then wiping the disk from there?
