ok un the lower right you will see some choices, look for one of this it could be any of this, Address value, network address, and if you have sp2 it should say locally administer address, click on that

Then you will see on the right an empty box on top of which will say Value, there you put the nrew mac address with will consist of 12 number letters combo, how ever you like it. but it best if you put a address which is similar to yours
