for slackware based its done in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet(1,2,3)

for mandrake u have to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and add a custom line "HWADDR="

here's example
Code:
[root@pii400 root]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=static BROADCAST=192.168.0.255 IPADDR=192.168.0.3 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 NETWORK=192.168.0.0 ONBOOT=yes HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
this should work for you .. however if it doesnt then theres other way to do it

You have three options of linux clients to choose from (official linux client , official GUI java client, unofficial client by Bhushan Tiwari), probably each of them will work. So go ahead and try Ubuntu :)
