    ok got it....gav up the thing....what i have done is, installed the GRUB on dirst sector of /boot.
    and added the entry in boot.ini..
    everything id fine till now....i can select "linux" from boot.ini and boot linux
    quiet peacefully..
    now i have done a mistake and want to fix it...
    actually i got the idea if protecting the linux boot through GRUB only after the process of boot.ini...
    Now can anyone tell me how to do it manually in grub.conf?
    dont tell me to run cd1 to repair grub... i dont have cd's and will also not burn my iso's

    ANY TAKERS?

    Did you ever try to do a google before asking this question ?

    Why are you so impatient to get answers ??? It takes some time for people to login here and reply... boot.ini cannot be password protected and for password protecting grub and lilo, click on above link...
