Ken,

Here is the snippet for finding the MAC Address on Linux.  I had to 
learn some basics on PCRE syntax.  Took a while, but was worth the 
knowledge.

case "Linux"
     if there is a file("/sbin/ifconfig") then
       put shell("/sbin/ifconfig") into temp
       get matchText(temp,"HWaddr[* ]([0-9A-Z:]*)",retVal)
     else
       return "An error has occured."
     end if
     break
