If 'ip' is available, then you could use c-a-f2 to get to a shell prompt
(once X has started). And issue commands something like the following:
ip link set eth0 down
ip link set eth0 address de:c1:a5:51:f1:ed
ip link set eth0 up
I haven't tested this on an install, but I think there is a reasonable chance
that the ip command will be available and that things will work.
