Sorry for this late reply. I made the changes that you suggested and now it
works fine. Thanks a lot!
I also noticed something: the function "show_bootp", called in
"init_all_network_interfaces" to display the network setup, sais that the
harware MAC address is FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF, even if I changed it to
08:88:12:34:56:78. I am sure that the change occured because I saw it on my
computer with "arp". Maybe this should be modified too in the main resources
to notice users that the MAC address has been set to the requested value.
