"While going at:
 How to disable all interactive editing control for GRUB menu at:
my /boot/grub/menu.lst contents are as follows:


# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,7)

Root login: enabled via editing "/etc/pam.d/gdm" &
For any other software, (like, e.g., VLC) if I try to install, installing
via user account and switching to root in the terminal.

But as listed at the url:

Nowhere are being seen the following contents:

## password ['--md5'] passwd
# If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing
# control (menu entry editor and command-line) and entries protected by the
# command 'lock'

which should be in '/boot/grub/menu.lst'
