I've successfully changed my MAC address for the integrated nic on my 
powerbook g4 - in OS 10.3 - but with the airport nic it returns the 
error:
sudo ifconfig en1 ether 01:01:01:01:01:01
ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): Operation not supported

That aside, I read something quite interesting @ 
http://www.securemac.com/macosxxnu.php ... I'm not eager to go through 
these steps myself,
but if a trusted source ( read: the benevolent lord programmer of the 
KISMAC fiefdom ) provided us all with a kernel which has been patched 
thus, i'd certainly be interested...

Cheers.
