How To: Find the MAC address of network cards in GNU/Linux

This is quite simple. Just type in the following command in the command prompt, to know the MAC address of the network cards present in your GNU/Linux box.

ifconfig | grep HWaddr

Depending upon the GNU/Linux distribution you are using, there may or may not be a frontend to this command. However this command should work in all GNU/Linux boxes.

Hope this helps. :)
