asus p5k, changing hwaddr.

How can I change hardware address of onboard( asus p5k mobo) network adapter in fedora 8( driver is atl1)? After changing hwaddr with gui and restarting network, ifconfig shows the build-in one. When stopping network after setting new hwaddr, there is error, that actual and configured addresses are mismatching. When starting networking service up there is no messages, and after approximately ten seconds network is up, but hw address has the device build-in value. In Debian testing I managed to configure adapter address via /etc/network/interfaces. Is it possible in fedora?

I have solved this problem by deleting fedora specific profile and starting interface manually via script. There is a bug somewhere( maybe in the atl1 driver itself) witch makes impossible to change hwaddr while bringing interface up. So this works for me( interface should be down):

ifconfig eth0 hw ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
ifconfig eth0 IP_ADDRESS netmask NETMASK up
P.S. I did not try to use fedora's network profiles with latest updates, but the solution written above still works.
