I tried in 10.2 ...  first try was an instant kernel panic....  second 
try on airport card i get the following message:
ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): Operation not supported
On my ethernet card, there are no errors, however the mac address does 
not seem to change...  Anyone with 10.3 want to try?

ps  this was on a ti 800 with apple airport card
