GRUB issue...

I have 3 OSes on my AMD sempron machine, viz. Debian, FC2 and WindowsXP. XP was installed first, FC2 second and Debian in the end.

Is there any way by which I can bring the FC2 grub to the fore front? Also, how do I set a GRUB password after having installed FC2 or Debian?

If you want Fedora grub to be the default, then you have to boot into Fedora and do
#grub-install /dev/hda (assuming hda is your main hard drive)
make sure you have added Debian and Windows to the /boot/grub.conf. To setup a password try doing
#grub-md5-crypt passwordyouwant
I have never used that command so I am not sure if it works, try querying this on google before using it.
