When I was doing my DHCP experiments, I just assigned MACs by hand on the
command line. That won't work so well for your environment, though...
There was a proposal a while back for a VMCP (or UMLCP). Nothing ever
came of it, but that would be ideal for a mass UML environment. You'd have
a DHCP-like server out there taking in tokens (which would be something like
uid + UML name) and handing out UML configuration information, like
filesystem and MAC.
