using ifconfig how do we set the hardware address ?
From the ifconfig man page on a Gentoo box:
hw class address
Set the hardware address of this interface, if the device driver supports this operation. The keyword must be fol- lowed by the name of the hardware class and the printable ASCII equivalent of the hardware address. Hardware classes currently supported include ether (Ethernet), ax25 (AMPR AX.25), ARCnet and netrom (AMPR NET/ROM).
