no, ifconfig won't do that. search the archives for a file called sea.c
also, if you search the archives for something like "MAC address change"
you might find a bunch of other useful hints.
you'll need to compile sea.c and run it. it will allow you to change your
MAC address. i've used it in 3.0 and under, but not 3.1
you'll either need to run it before your kernel changes securelevel or you
will need to set your securelevel to -1. 'man rc' for more info, and/or
peruse the /etc/rc* files
