Question DHCP and manually set MAC address 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 12
From: Andreas Hotz ahotz

To use my laptop on the company network, I have to use DHCP. No problem so far. But I have to use DHCP with a manually configured MAC address. Don't ask me why this is so, it just is that way. The DHCP server won't answer me with thy MAC address burned into the adapter.

I could not find a suitable variable in the PCMCIA config scripts. I think I have to tweak a little with ifconfig. Maybe in the start_fn function in network.opts? Or should I change config instead. Any tips which is the best way to do it?
