Setting GRUB password


Hi,

I want to set a password for the grub-loader..
How can I do it?

I remember something like write the password into the menu.lst file
then save the menu.lst
and then delete the password out of the menu.lst....???

Can anybody tell me the exact way please..
My system: Debian Sarge kernel: 2.6.6-1

Thx in advance

Greetz

The encrypted password must be in menu.lst

password --md5 <password here>

To encrypt use grub-md5-crypt
