    I know IP address aliasing is possible, but is MAC Address aliasing possible, too ?

    I want to have multiple IP addresses configured via DHCP because my ISP doesn't allow anything else, so I am trying to do the following:
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    hwaddress ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    auto eth0:1
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    hwaddress ether YY:YY:YY:YY:YY
    Problem is that if I set the HWADDRESS of eth0:1 to Y, the HWADDRESS of eth0 also changes to Y.

    Does anyone know a workaround ?
