No thats the MAC address, you are getting the info over DHCP most likely,
then run ifconfig again and it should have an IP address then. Does your NIC
go beep-beep during boot/removal/insertion?
You may have the wrong module loading for your NIC.

Subject: [ILUG] Network Adapter Address
I need to get the Network Adapter Address of a PCMCIA card. What's the
quickest way to find it?
I've run ifconfig and it shows me a HWaddr of 00:10:A4:01:A5:07 for eth0.
Perchance would that be it???
