Changing GRUB password

First, I'd like to thank and congratulate the GRUB development team. I'd 
gotten used to lilo over the past few years, but GRUB is a breath of fresh 
air! It's so much easier to update kernels now.

While recently installing RedHat Linux 7.3 with GRUB, I set a passord for 
GRUB that I would now like to change. The passord works fine for entering the 
GRUB command interface during boot. I'd just like to change it, but am 
unsure how to proceed.

Reading through the GRUB manual, it looks like the password command 
not the tool but the md5crypt command may be part of the solution. 
Thought I'd ask an expert before moving ahead. Thanks for any 
advice you can provide.
