Depends, what are you trying to protect against specifically?  There
is no fool proof way to prevent spoofing MAC addresses.  You can use
static ARP, which helps for some things but is a pain to maintain.

Yes, by editing the config.xml on the CD in a text editor.  It's a FAT
formatted floppy, so you can use any OS to modify it.  That's a good
way to introduce configuration errors though, so I would recommend
against it.
