Isn't that the one that requires 'locally administered' MAC addresses
for all the cards?

Back to the original issue, there is no problem using locally
administered MAC address for a 2nd card in a sun box.
The standard says that all addresses with 0x2 set in the first
byte (the bit next to the multicast bit) are locally administered.
As such they shouldn't appear on a card's eprom.
