I feel like a real dumb"a" while you guys chatter on  :-)

I rebooted, got the blue Centos screen
Enter to edit
Line 2  Kernel/vmline-2.6.18
hit e
<gvo100 rhgb quite
added an s      (quites)   Enter
then at a later try also added the b (quitesb)

Back to 3 line menu
Could only get to command pressing a C
<grub> passwd   +  unrecognised.

Reboot to black screen login/Password screen again.
passwd didn't work

Sorry looks like I'm lost again..

ozstar   :-)
