    Exclamation How Do You Password Protect Grub (GNU GRUB 1.98)


    I have been looking for information on how to password protect Grub (GNU GRUB 1.9, I'm not on Grub2. I did find the document for Grub2 but it does me no good.

    I have also searched several other sites for clues on how to do this but most point to other Linux flavors.

    Does anyone here know how to do this for Ubuntu? I would appreciate any help you can give me. I just need to setup an admin password to protect menu entries in Grub, but I'm lost.

    Thank you.

    By the way I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I can't yet upgrade to a later release.
