Share a DSL internet connection over FireWire

Rob must be busy or asleep at the wheel. I agree with the first two comments. Too much manual config for something so simple. 1st machine. Set Ethernet to DHCP. In the sharing pref pane, enable internet connection sharing and share from ethernet to firewire. 2nd machine. Set firewire to dhcp. Done.

Share a DSL internet connection over FireWire

Does this use the same MAC address as the host machine or does it still use the connected machines MAC address? I guess I'm wondering if the connected machines address is broadcast through the host. Some networks or ISP's detect additional MAC addresses and I need away around this once in a while.
