I understand that works with the QFE cards (which I have, but apparently
these aren't supported under SunOS 4.1.4) but the FastEthernet 2.1 cards
I have don't have their own local MAC address.  What I understand is
that the MAC address has to be set on bootup via ifconfig.

Am I correct in this, and are there any problems I'm currently unaware
of that I have to watch out for?
