Hi..You can set GRUB password during Linux installation
and also u can set it after that by giving it in
/boot/grub/grub.conf file by giving this line

  password  --md5 $1$q6MJp/$RCW5VngqVruYS/94ZuUDZ1


 { where $1$q6MJp/$RCW5VngqVruYS/94ZuUDZ1 is your md5 password]

u can get the password in form of md5 by giving  command

grub-md5-crypt
