Finding a MAC Address

My network has MAC Filtering on it and i can't find the MAC address anywhere in linux. I need help because this server has to be up before the end of the week. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if you run: /sbin/ifconfig -a
you will see all your interfaces. For the ones that have MACS you will see a part that says
HWaddr <your mac>
