How to Change M52233DEMO MAC address?

Hey,

I've got a M52233Demo Boad here, running CodeWarrior 6.3 build 14.

I have loaded the latest version of the TCP/IP Web Server from the freescale page.
I've been looking for a way to change the ethernet mac address, but have not found a method that works. I assumed this value would be stored in some variable in one of the c files, but I have not been able to find anything that works.

I have noticed this interesting comment though in the main.c source:

/* We set the station's Ethernet physical (MAC) address
* from the address already in use by dBUG. This prevents
* ARP problems on the decelopment server. Production systems
* usually read this from flash or eprom.
*/

Can the address referenced above (the one in use by dBUG) be changed?

I'm very new to the coldfire chips. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim
