I think all Linux and all Windows, and vaguely recall doing it with SUNs and their 
"forth" like boot language, joys of Fullduplex, coming back to the office and 
finding half the boxes have deadbeef in their MAC address because the new techies 
have found out how to.

Strangely I thought of a really handy use for it the other day, technically illegal 
so never mind..
