Wow you guys are great, you answered my next question even before I was 
done posting it.

So then, as long as I have a MAC to work with, I can assign a 
"fixed-address" to whatever I want?

globally unique, but doesn't actually do/mean anything. Most people use 
it as a label so that humans reading the config can see what device it 
refers to.
