There is no default address, if you turn it on for the first time in 
the bios settings, it opens a text entry window and asks for an 
address.  I'd assume if it had a default, it would show there, but 
its blank until you fill it in.

Ok, I'll check that out right now.  brb.  Humm, it lists Nvidia as 
having the first 24 bits of 00044B.  I'll change that the next time I 
reboot, many thanks.
