Procedure to password protect your grub menu is simple. Steps are mentioned below.
1. Use the command grub-md5-crypt to generate an encrypted password in MD5 (Message Digest Algorithm 5) format.
2. Open your /boot/grub/grub.conf file and copy the encrypted password.
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda1
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
password --md5 $1$POwoW$3.ean3fFinACXjN9Ch/qG/
title Fedora (126.96.36.199-42.fc8)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-42.fc8 ro root=LABEL=/
Enter the password --md5 ENCRYPTED-PASSWORD line just before the title line.
3. Restart your computer and to modify the GRUB menu first enter p and then enter the password that you encrypted.
4. Now your GRUB is MD5 password protected.

I love C++ language. There is something about this language, I never liked any other programming languages like Java.
I has been a long time since I last wrote any C++ Program. Well these days I am trying to learn Kernel Programming and C++ is the Mother tongue of Linux Kernel. I am not a very good Programmer and hence few days back I read this wonderful little tutorial on C++.
Here is the link http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/
It covers most of the aspects of C++ starting with basics, pointer and classes. Do check this link if you want to brush up those old school C++ skills.
