why not just recompile the kernel to allow MAC changing and use ifconfig to change it? (haven't done it yet, but heard this is the way). instructions at securemac.com, instructions are advanced..

is there still no possibility to edit the MAC address of Airport cards ?

Not with the Apple drivers, no.

we discussed this a while ago on the list. someone could use the sourceforge wireless driver and some components of the viha driver to write a new driver, which could do that, but no one had time.

 is there an alternative, i mean, does it work with some linux dist.
 on my pismo g3 ?

Dunno. Does the Airport driver in your Linux distribution allow for things like changing the MAC address?

MAC spoofing does worked with debian and yellowdog, when i tried it. if it is broken now it should be no problem to repair it.

what did all others do ?

at least they did not spoof, that is all i can tell you about it ;)
