[ubuntu-8.10] Change MAC adress on every boot-up


Hi everyone.

macchanger allows you to change the MAC to random. Now I want to do this during boot-up, so I get a random MAC adress. I want to do this, because some DHCP servers know me by MAC and give me the same IP.

So, in which file I have to write the command? Does /etc/init.d/networking do the job?

Please help me.

Thanks.

Yes it should work, but this should be done first.
