How to remove GRUB edit menu?

I don't want someone just reboot my computer and edit GRUB to boot in as single mode or root. So, how do I remove the edit menu? I just want GRUB to display dual boot for winxp and fedora only, so they can't highligt fedora and hit 'e' option to edit boot level. Thanks for your help.

I don't think it's possible without modifying the source.

Just use a boot password (but, then, no one else could get on your PC).

GRUB comes with a password feature. Take a look at Protecting your computer from cracking in the Grub Manual. There are a few options to choose from like setting a password for edit or command mode or making certain entries require a password.
