Ethernet card without HWaddr / MAC address ?

(first of all my apologize if this mailing list is not the relevant place for
I use FC4 and installed a PCI Ethernet card based on chip RealTek 8139
and received the following info during probing:
8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.27
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKG] enabled at IRQ 10
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:0b.0[A] -> Link [LNKG] -> GSI 10 (level, low) ->
8139too: 0000:01:0b.0: unknown chip version, assuming RTL-8139
8139too: 0000:01:0b.0: TxConfig = 0xffffffff
eth1: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xb800, ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff, IRQ 10
eth1: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139'
and when using ifconfig:
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
inet6 addr: fe80::fdff:ffff:feff:ffff/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:4294960281 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:10 Base address:0xb800
which seems correct ?
but when starting pppoe:
13 17:08:14 localhost adsl-connect: ADSL connection lost; attempting
Aug 13 17:08:19 localhost pppd: pppd 2.4.2 started by root, uid 0
Aug 13 17:08:19 localhost pppoe: Interface eth1 has broadcast/multicast
Aug 13 17:08:19 localhost pppd: Couldn't get channel number:
Aug 13 17:08:19 localhost pppd: Exit.
- what about an ethernet card without detected HWaddr ?
- does it prevent to use it for pppoe or any Ethernet connections ?
