Setting the MAC address of any card to another value is no problem. I posted a way to do this from your network.opts easily by changing David's network script slightly. This way you can change any MAC address by setting a variable in any of the "case" clauses in config.opts (for example based on the slot you put your PCMCIA card in.

See item 66, subitem 2 in this discussion forum for the description.
