Techek, iDiC =),

If we assume you have commandline-access to MySQL I suggest you use 
these commands :
mysql> use <database_name>
mysql> show tables
For every table listed, use :
mysql> delete from <table_name>
That's it. I hope you get the idea - and be sure to USE the correct 
database for God's sake!
