If you have grub installed already what you will need to do is edit the grub.conf file to change or remove that password.

Grab a copy of knoppix off the web (, you can use that to boot up and mount your linux partition. Than edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf file to change or re-move the password.

So wile doing this you will probably realize how easy it is to get around a grub password. I would recomend taking your CD-ROM out of the boot order and than locking your BIOS with a password if you haven't already. Goodluck.

If you need to re-install grub, there is an option for than on the RedHat install CD, just type in rescue at the boot promt.
