New Mobo - Change MAC Address

That page does not show how to make the change persistent -- if you
merely use ifconfig to do it, then on reboot the nic will again report
the mac address in its firmware.

You can include a "MACADDR=xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx" directive in your static
configuration file (be sure to remove any "HWADDR=xx.xx.xx.xx.xx"
directive that might already be there).  Then restart your networking.
That should be persistent.  

If you need more detail, let us know which distro you are using.  

Hope that helps.

Scott
