It's possible, but first
Why do you want to do this?
Almost every reason that people give for wanting to do this is deeply,
fundamentally flawed. Really bad reasons are
Temporarily pretending to be another machine
Testing DHCP servers
All of these can be done by temporarily changing the MAC address with
ifconfig eth0 hwaddr ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
Do you have a good reason?
