First you need to remove the old grout.  Depending on the size of the area and what you're willing to invest, there are a few options.  The first is what's called a "grout saw".  It has carbide grit on the edge of the blade and you run it back and forth between the tiles "sawing" away the grout.  It's slow tedious work but the saw is pretty cheap.

 

 

If you happen to already own a Dremel, they offer a grout removal accessory for the tool.  It's basically a plastic base and a special bit.

 

 

The final choice is what's called an oscillating tool.  There is a whole bunch of them on the market today with prices from under $50 to many hundreds of dollars.  The nice thing about oscillating tools is that they have a bunch of accessories that allow them to be used for cutting and sanding as well.  The only thing I would recommend is that you stick with a name brand tool that offers a wide range of accessories that are readily available.  Then use a grout blade, which is much like the manual grout saw, just carbide grit bonded to the blade, to remove the grout.
