Can a Virtual PC emulate a mac address for the network card too? It probably is possible but I think the Virtual PC / VirtualBox / VMWare / Parallel, all probably won't support it as the mac address is supposed to be unique?

Yes, this can be done in Virtual PC, VMWare, VirtualBox and Parallels.

All the VM apps allow this, because VMs are often used to test network configurations and being able to simulate machines with specific MAC addresses can be useful.
