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).
