Modify /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX and remove the HWADDR
line if you have one, and add a MACADDR with the mac address you want
to use.

Beware, some network cards may protest having the mac address changed,
and using both HWADDR and MACADDR can cause issues. See
/usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt for details.
