It totally sucks, but after a fair amount of searching it looks like all
Grid owners are SOL. Apparently AST bought grid at some point, and when AST
went down the toilet the program or file they looked at to get the
passwords got lost. I have two or three Grids, 1750 I think, that work
fine, except no password to allow booting from the floppy and a restore.

I've even toyed with the idea of doing something to the hard drive by
taking it out and putting it in another machine, or maybe cloning the roms
in a Tandy machine and putting them in a cooresponding Grid.

What could be more frustrating that a usefull class portable with good
batteries and no password? Now I wish I had picked the "Tandy's" out of the
scrapyard box instead of the Grids.
