But when I use the SLiRP networking I get a different MAC address on every boot of the colinux session.
I do not get the network adapters MAC address, could you please clarify why this is happening. In the case of 0.6.4, I set the MAC address to the network adapters value in the xml config file.
Looking forward to hearing from you,

No. The MAC is fixed coded in the source, and is only seeing from
coLinux side, not from the host side. SLiRP handle only TCP and UDP
datagrams to the outside, it's never sending ARP requests.
I think, you never need to change the MAC, because it's a virtual
network only between coLinux and the host. The seeing from outsite into
your host the slirp use your MAC from your network adapater. From the
outside your SLIiRP interface is completly hidden, it's seeing only as a
application using the winsock networking API.
