There is probably a sticker on the card as well. But because it is in the computer, and you probably do not want to take it apart, just comment out or delete the line that starts "HWADDR=" in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1. If things are working correctly, you can also get the hardware address, by running "/sbin/ifconfig eth1". The first line will be something like: eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:A5:F4:91:5E Note: The hardware address and the default MAC address of the card should be the same. But you can change the MAC address of most cards. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
