Description of problem:
Many students make the error of using `passwd` instead of `password`
when editting grub.conf.
If the curriculum explicitly stresses that `passwd` within grub.conf
is incorrect, the error should occur less often. This is reinforced
when I mention `root` and harddisk devices, /dev/hda1 vs. (hd0,0), are
referred to differently within grub than in the command-line/operating
system. It also helps to say that Grub and Linux syntaxes can be
thought of as different languages within the system.

reason that there was so much confusion.
