<quote from the docs> Password Protecting GRUB

Finally, remember that the /boot/grub/grub.conf  file is world-readable by
default. It is a good idea to change this, as it has no affect on the

chmod 600  /boot/grub/grub.conf

But grub.conf in RH 9 already has 600 permissions.

So it is!

Great news.

This is a new thing and a good thing.

I have corrected the posted an errata, fixed the source, and fixed the online HTML.
