here I am again. I just hacked a menu-item specific password protection for 
It does not encrypt the passwords, but I do not think that is necessary. If 
someone is able to read the menu.lst file, he can also modify. This means, even 
if the passwords were stored encrypted, the attacker could just replace them 
with the encrypted versions of his own password and then boot the system.
I will probably send you guys the code tomorrow - have to test it first :-)
